A creative arts experiences and movement activity all rolled into one!
You will need:
Paint in low tubs (large enough to step into).
Water, towels, wipes for clean up
Stand in the paint, then walk/dance on the paper.
It’s interesting to stand back and look at the patterns that our feet make.
Can we look at the foot prints and guess how someone would stand to make that print? What could if look like if you played follow the leader?
What if you had one foot in one colour and one foot in another colour?
If everyone uses the same colour and they all dance at once is there a way we can tell them apart?
(This is best done outside on a soft/grass surface. It can get a little slippery so a soft placed to fall onto is a good idea (especially with more than 1 child at a time) – you can discuss with children ways to minimise falls –e.g. not moving too quickly or only putting a little bit of paint on their feet.)
