    Fingerpaint Baggies

    During a skill block I'm taking I learned about fingerpaint baggies. I made some for my class and think they are so neat! I thought I would share this here, although I'm sure some of you veterans probably know this one by now :)

    Here's what you need: fingerpaint, a gallon size zip log bag, a plastic spoon and masking tape.

    Here's what you do: Put about 6 heaping spoonfuls of fingerpaint into the baggie. Then get the air out as best as you can and seal the baggie. Reinforce the edges of the baggie with masking tape and smooth out the paint inside the baggie.

    These works like those old magna doodle boards. Kids can trace letters and words on the bag. The paint separates as they move their finger across the bag. When they are ready to "erase", they just smooth out the paint and start over again. I'm using mine for spelling review, sight words, etc. Enjoy!
