This idea is much the same as Ribbon Painting but we used tinsel to make it a fun festive activity. Open ended activities are a more about the process than the end results but you could turn this painting into cute gift tags, greetings cards or possibly gift wrap.
You will need
Paper plates or similar
1. Squirt paint onto paper plates
2. Dip tinsel into the paint
3. Blob, swirl, drag and splodge the tinsel across across your paper
4. Keep going until your child is happy with their painting
Tip : Turn on some Christmas Music while they paint it can be a lot of fun to paint to the rhythm
