Paint Over Tape

A while back we explored painting over tape. The kids explored for a while before seeing the possibilities. We had to try a couple of kinds of paper before we found the right combination. (The tape wasn't as "easy release" as I'd hoped.)

Here are some of the explorations and results.

One boy decided to keep the tape on his picture.

And one girl decided just to explore the process instead of think about the end product.

Some kids just ignored the tape and created their own designs.

I love an activity that allows kids to explore in lots of different ways.


  1. We thought we'd try this too Scott but with mud ... We'll blog about it when we do!

    Donna :) :)

  2. I'm intrigued by that idea, Donna. I can't wait for that blog post.

  3. I'm glad you gave them the time and space to explore, Scott. We've tried this before, but I don't think I've allowed enough time. You've inspired me to revisit this. Thanks!
