It's a Wrap!

For this activity, you’ll need plain paper, spoons, and paint. Using the spoons, have your child dribble her choice of different colors on the paper. Carefully place a piece of plastic wrap over the paper, being sure it completely covers the paper. With your hands, the two of you can smooth out the wrap, “pushing” the paint to blend into patterns.
