Looking for a (mostly) mess-free way for the kiddos to play with paint? Shake painting is for you! With shake painting kids get active as they shake, move, jump around — while creating art!
Swap out the usual marbles for acorns, and you have a fun fall activity.
Set Up Acorn Shake Painting
For this activity, you’ll need:
(affiliate links used below)
- a box
- paint (we like fall colors from this set)
- paper (we like using this fingerpaint paper, as it holds up better)
Place a piece of paper in the box. Squirt the paint on the paper. Add the acorns to the paper. Close the box top and shake, shake, shake!
Then the best part — let the kids open the box and see their creation!
