Painting inside circles


What you will need:

  • White craft paper or card stock
  • Cardboard tube (could also be, a lid from a jar or pringles can, something to make a circle with).
  • Black paint
  • Multi-colours of paint
  • Paint brushes


Art is an expression of one's individuality. This project can be done by every age group you  have in your family or backyard camp setting. Encourage their ability to create their own patterns and colour combinations.  

How to create:

  • Step 1: By dipping cardboard tube into the black paint, create circles on the paper. Overlapping is encouraged to create more patterns to fill in. Let set for a few minutes.
  • Step 2: Using the coloured paints, start to fill in the shapes that have been created by the overlapped circle patterns.
  • Step 3: Since the pattern has been created with the black circles, they can be coloured in with crayons or coloured pencils for older children.
