A new week means a new topic for our Health & Fitness theme. And the topic of the day was Kick. 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…

Preschool Fitness Theme Roll Painting Invitation to Create Process Art Experience
What you’ll need
- Inspiration Photo
- Box Lid (or tray/pan)
Here’s how to do it
- Set out Inspiration Photo and additional materials.
- What do you notice about the photo?
- How can you make designs with a ball and paint?
- What happens when you move the lid quickly? Slowly?
- What colors do you want to mix on your paper?
- Did the child explore rolling the ball inside the box lid?
- Did he explain how the rolling made marks on his paper?
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.
