Rubber Band Splatter Painting

This project's a messy one, but oh so fun! (Just make sure you do it outside!) I can't recall a time my children laughed so hard.

With an old frame, rubber bands, and paint, this project quickly came together and kept getting used over and over again. I plan on having a splatter paint play date very soon. That would be loads of fun!

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Find an old frame, then remove the glass and frame backing.

  • Step 2

    Wrap the rubber bands around the frame in different spots to be sure to get some good splatter coverage. Slide a piece of paper in between the rubber bands. Now you're ready to go!

  • Step 3

    The kids had no idea what we were doing, but they just went with it and started painting the rubber bands. After a minute of this I stretched a rubber band up and let it snap back splattering paint all over. The looks on my children's faces were priceless!

  • Step 5

    I made this frame a double sided splatter frame, but they were enjoying doing this as a team and laughing together that they stayed on one side the entire time. I love that this was something they could do and enjoy together.

  • Step 6

    They repeated this process so many times. We went through a lot of paper!

    The art work came out so pretty we thought this would be a great way to make homemade cards and frame-worthy art for family.
