Are you looking for a fun sensory activity for your kids to do this summer? This 4th of July Sensory Painting is an engaging activity and creative project for children to make for the up-coming holiday.
4th of July Sensory Painting:
What are sensory activities? Like this painting project, sensory activities stimulate your children’s senses of touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. They include movement and balance activities too. These type of activities are important because they let your kids learn to explore, investigate, observe, experiment, and much more.
Getting Ready To Do The 4th of July Sensory Painting:
- Gallon Size Resealable Bag
- White Card Stock or Paper
- Red, White, and Blue Paint
- Decorative Foam Stars
How To Do The 4th of July Sensory Painting:
To begin making this sensory painting, place a piece of white card stock or paper into a gallon size resealable bag. You may need to cut the piece of paper to fit inside of the bag.
Next, pour a little bit of red, white, and blue paint onto the paper. For this project, we created dots around the paper with the paint.
Then, place a decorative foam star on each paint dot. After adding the paper, paint and stars, zip the bag closed. You may want to add a piece of tape around the top of bag so the paint doesn’t squeeze out the top.
For this sensory activity, I like to use white card stock instead of paper because the paint won’t soak through the thicker paper. You can then use your painting to create a card for someone special or make a festive banner or decoration for your holiday barbecue.
This 4th of July Sensory Painting will stimulate your children’s senses as they create a unique project for Independence Day! This engaging activity is fun for kids of all ages and sure to be a hit with your kids this summer.
