Not surprisingly, the little guy and I had a blast with this awesome Roll Painting Invitation to Create Process Art Experience.

So of course I asked the little guy what he wanted to tell our friends about this particular activity and he’s all like, ” I just loved it because of the paint!” He’s always so enthusiastic, isn’t he? Lol…

I’m going to have to agree with the little guy. The paint is where it’s at. Little kids love messy play and it’s great for them from both a sensory perspective as well as developmentally.

And while we’re on the subject, let’s not forget about the fact that process art encourages creative thinking and problem-solving skills.

I’m absolutely in love with the colors that the little guy picked for his Preschool Fitness Theme Roll Painting Invitation to Create Process Art Experience and we totally hung it up on the wall when the paint was dry.
