We Play - Jack and Jill

Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We    Play

Messy Fun is generally good fun and this activity is no exception so play clothes are a must. Todays Nursery Rhyme was teamed up with some outside ball down the slide painting (hmmm can't think of a better name for it).

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down and broke his crown

And Jill came tumbling after

You will need
A long roll of paper
2 balls
A slide
Bucket or container to catch the balls at the end of the slide

1 .Setup by covering your slide in paper and placing a bucket at the end of the slide
2 .We then drew faces on the balls and labelled them Jack and Jill

3.Squeeze the paint into shallow containers4 .Time to Play

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water

(we ran through the nursery rhyme with the balls paint free the first time)

Jack fell down and broke his crown

Jill came tumbling after

Wow this is fun

Our finished painting

'Come Play at Childhood 101 We Play link up'

Inspiration for ball slide painting came from the Ooey Goey Lady

THAT looks like soooo much fun! Princess is NOT going to look at it as I have no balls in the house ... okay, there are balls, but it's buddy outside and we are not doing it in the kitchen! LOL

What a cool idea - I'm going to have to look out for a roll of paper.

Philippa, Neevah and Liam said...

CatWay - We used a roll of wrapping paper but a roll of brown paper would work just as well hope that helps :)

thanks jtlam :)
