Hammer Painting

This week with my kindergartners at church, we tried something a little new - hammer painting.

First, fold the page in half. Spread paint on one side of the fold.

Fold the paper onto the paint. Hammer and hammer and hammer.

Some kids hammered slowly and methodically. Some kids hammered quickly.

But either way, the result was a lot of noise!

Open the paper and see the results.

Add more paint and hammer again.

We folded our paper because we needed to keep things less messy this time. But we considered hammering directly on the paint, causing more spatter. Or dip the hammer in paint and hammer onto paper.

Whichever option is done, the result is noisy fun with paint!
