Painting with Jars

Today we tried a new medium to paint with.....Jars!  My kids loved it.  I like to challenge the kids by putting out unusual items to paint with.  We have used rocks, jelly beans, Lego's, and ice.  It allows the children to use their problem solving skills, imagination, fine motor and many other benefits. 

 
this jar had ridges on the bottom and the kids figured out that if
they dragged the jar it would make this print





 
I just love how these jar paintings came out. 

*As always, when children are using anything breakable, close supervision is required.
