Jingle Bell Painting

We are discussing music this week, and with the holidays right around the corner I thought it would be fun to make some art with jingle bells! We did it the same way we marble paint. I put some jingle bells into red and green paint.
The kids scooped the bells out with a spoon and plopped them in a box that had a piece of paper in it. Then they rolled that jingle bell all around!

To keep the red and green from mixing too much (and ending up brown), we kept this activity very short.

I will be honest with you, though. At first there isn't much of a jingle sound but as the thick paint wears off, you can hear those little bells ringing! And the kids loved it!
