Bounce Paint Process Art for Kids
Years ago, we discovered something pretty amazing. We call it to bounce paint process art, and I am here to share all the creative details.
It’s simple and fun, and most importantly, gets everyone out of the house. – Bring it on, spring; we’ve got some painting to do.

Bounce paint is a unique painting idea for kids.
To make this even more interesting, I used primary colors. As we bounce, we also mix, making different color combinations all over the kraft paper.
And you know how we roll. We like to take something simple like painting and give it a little creative twist, just like we did with Paint the Ice and Magic Chalk Paint.
However, if you are up for a less messy, more traditional painting approach, you’ll want to start with sponge painting and Fall Leaf Painting.
Whichever your painting style, we are here to get you set up and started.
To begin, I searched around for something we haven’t painted with before.
Do you know what I came up with?
Bouncy balls! Yep. Bouncy balls straight from the garage. I wrapped them with yarn and invited everyone in on the color mixing fun.

- Use builder’s paper from a home improvement store to create your canvas. I find this in the painting aisle.
First, I tape the butcher paper on the ground outside.
Next, I wrap the bouncy balls with yarn leaving a long strand to hold and control the bouncy ball around the canvas.
The final step is adding blobs of red, yellow, and blue paint to the butcher paper. I invite my children to begin painting and mixing colors. – one bounce at a time.
