Tumble Painting with Rocks

I was inspired by this post about painting with acorns at Teach Preschool, and I decided to try a variation to make invitations for our Stone Soup party!

You need:
Baby wipes container (or shoe box with lid, oatmeal container, coffee can, etc.)
Containers for paint
Small rocks

1)  Place a 1/2 sheet of paper in the container.

2)  Put individual paint colors in small bowls and place rocks in paint.  Scoop rocks into wipes container.

3)  Close container and shake, shake, shake!

We experimented with various colors of paper.  The girls liked yellow the best!

I wonder how many types of containers we can find to paint with? LOL!

I've done it with a dish pan (the kind you find at the dollar store to fit in your sink) and a golf ball. We still have that one hanging on the refrigerator because it turned out so cool. You just roll the ball back and forth in the dish pan.

Love the idea of shaking it up and down though. My girls would like it too!
