If you are looking for a fun painting activity for toddlers, just add balls! This technique is very similar to our golf ball painting, except we use balls. These types of activities involve the upper body as the children focus on not only holding the tray or box lid, but also move it back and forth to move the balls around. Our busy children especially love this activity since it involves movement.

It takes great concentration and  hand-eye coordination to keep the ball moving back and forth, but once the children master this skill, they often want to do it over and over again.
