These kids adore art and paint just as much as movement. Unfortunately they cannot stay put at the art table to enjoy and complete the activity because they need to MOOOVE…and not sit.If the child gets stir crazy and cannot stay long enough at the art table to complete the art activity, these ideas will work great! They also are great for your fine motor- art loving kids because let’s just face it – it involves lots of paint. Here is a fun collection from our favorite bloggers( of course you will see a few from here). When I say active art, I mean art activities which do not involve being at an table with a paint brush.{ By the way we love those too.
