Basketball Craft for Kids



We did this craft in the height of March Madness and the kids loved it.
But if you've got little ones who enjoy sports, this is a fun craft for any time of the year!

Supplies:
  • White paper
  • Orange paint (fingerpaint, tempera paint, or poster paint) or mix red and yellow to get orange. :)
  • Black marker
  • Toilet Paper tube
  • Bubble wrap
  • Tape

Prep Work:

1. Tape a small piece of bubble wrap onto your TP tube. Or if you have 2 little ones, cut the tube in half and then tape the bubble wrap on.




2. On white paper, draw a simple Basketball shape: Circle. Line from top to bottom. Line from side to side. Then two curvy lines on each side. Draw as many as your kids want to paint!




Craft Time!!

1. Have your child dip their TP tube bubble-wrap into the orange paint and roll it over the basketball drawing. The bubbles kind of mimic the bumpy texture of a real basketball. :)



2. Let it dry....



3. Then cut them out!


HAVE FUN!


*P.S. The best finger paints around are by Crayola. They are the perfect consistency. Not too runny and not too thick. And best of all they are completely washable--and so easy to wipe off tables, fingers, and wash out of clothes. I HIGHLY recommend them for painting crafts with kids. 
And there is a great deal on Amazon right now to get a nice set of 12 different colors. In big bottles that you can use for a LONG time! Check it out!
