Drop painting is a fun way for children to explore and create a unique piece of art.
This project supports children as they learn they can combine ideas and materials to create any design they can imagine.
Pour sand into the nylons, about a cup of sand works well. Tie a knot in the nylon near the top of the sand to keep the sand from falling out.
You're ready to invite the children to create! Give children a very brief explanation of the process, and then let them explore for themselves!
Children begin by dropping the nylon sock into the paint and then dropping it onto the paper.
As the children create talk about the patterns and textures. Some of the sand drops out of the nylons and sticks to the paper adding to the complexity of the design.
Repeat the process until desired look is achieved!
Allow to dry and put on display!
