This great mess free activity will have your kids creating wonderful pieces of art in an entirely new and fun way and is perfect for younger aged children!


  • Balls
  • Box (small to medium sized)
  • Paper plates
  • Sticky tape
  • Scissors
  • Paper
  • Paint


  1. Firstly start by cutting the piece of paper to fit the size of your chosen box.
  2. To make sure the paper at the bottom of the box stays in place, cut a piece of sticky tape to fold and stick on the bottom of the box and stick the paper on top.
  3. Pour your chosen colour paint in blobs onto the paper plates.
  4. Dip each side of the balls into the paint and place into the box (choose different colours if you wish).
  5. Tape up the box and start to shake!
  6. Peel the tape from the box and view your masterpiece.
