So seeing as it is the time that there are a bunch of flies on camp this week because apparently it is fly breeding time, We have decided to paint with fly swatters since there are a bunch of fly swatters laying around. Nothing like coming up with a fun new way to paint!
Size of group: 1-10
Materials needed: Fly swatters, paint in many different colors, paper, canvas (optional)
Objective: Gross motor skills. Color recognition, Creativity
Directions: This activity is pretty easy and straight forward. You want to tape your paper onto a table or a wall. It is good to have different blobs of paint on either a paper plate to where you can either softly dip your swatter into it or you can take a paintbrush and paint a few sections of the swatter different colors and shapes so they show up on the paper. Something fun to do is to tape a little fly that you print out onto the paper and it gives the painter somewhere to aim and hit the paper.
