Bouncy ball painting!

Over the last couple of weeks at some of our classes we’ve been exploring Circles – printing, puppet making, circle collages and lots more! One of our favourite activities has been bouncy ball painting – always a big hit!

Bouncy ball painting is a super simple activity to try at home with your own little artists. You just need a rimmed tray, some bouncy balls, paper and paint! Pop the paper on the tray, dip the balls in the paint, place the balls on the paper and get started! Get your little one to tip and move the tray to roll the balls across the paper and watch some fab patterns emerge!

Great for developing fine and gross motor skills, coordination, learning about cause and effect, colour mixing – and tons of fun too!… try using different size balls or textured balls – tumble dryer balls make some great patterns!


Brave Knights and Fierce Dragons!

This week it’s been all about Knights and Dragons in our own nod to St George’s Day, ARTventurers style!

The Little ARTventurers in Liverpool, York and Sunderland have been having tons of fun creating royal crowns, making egg box dragons (will yours be a scary dragon or a friendly one??), paper cup dragons, knights shields with shiny paint and tinfoil and hunting for castles, knights and dragons in lots of foam!

Great fun and a big hit with all the toddlers and pre-schoolers!
