B (now about 2 1/2 years old) likes to paint THINGS. He’s not so much into just painting on a piece of paper, although he will. He is VERY motivated to paint something, such as a wooden airplane or a pumpkin. In this project we painted wooden balls (it’s what we had available). Knowing that the balls would roll away, I put them in an old, lightweight frying pan. B had fun using his paintbrush and turning the pan to get paint all over the wooden balls. Then I added some cut out paper shapes on the bottom of the pan. SIMPLE, EASY, FUN!
