Rubber Band Snap Painting

Oh today's art was messy - real messy. I did warn the families it would be but I didn't realize how much. I saw this on a website and I apologize for forgetting where and not writing it down to give credit.

We tried rubber band SNAPpainting.
I found these old wooden frames at a thrift store and wrapped thick rubber bands around them. With a piece of paper underneath they painted the rubber bands.
Now the really messy part - SNAP the rubber band.
It splatters beautifully.

So we had to devise a method to prevent the splatter up to our faces.

That seemed to work okay except it was difficult to hold down the frame, keep the bands covered and allow the child to see underneath to SNAP the bands.
This family was inventive...

The results were pretty.
