If you're the parent of an artistic child, chances are, you have a lot of paint lying around the house. Painting is a great way for kids to get a sense of colors and patterns and also is just plain fun. But if finger-painting and simple pictures are starting to get a little dry, and you're looking for a new way to approach this classic medium, here's a unique painting style for any preschooler to try: make easy pendulum paintings. All you need is a funnel and string, some paint, and a canvas, and you can really get into the 'swing' of things!
Note: This project takes some coordination and timing but is tons of fun and creates very interesting designs.
