Do you have any gourds left over from Fall decorations?
Use them for a fun and messy painting activity.
Put the gourds and splashes of paint inside a long box.
Experiment with how the gourds move.
Roll, spin, throw, and swipe the gourds inside the box to create a modern painting piece made by your children.
To learn about color mixing, use two primary colors to create a secondary color.
Be sure to paint in an area of the home that can be wiped clean or paint outside as paint will end up everywhere.
If you like this activity but don’t have any gourds, read how we painted with balls.
