This fun and easy project is a great way to have fun with paint and shapes, and show your children how to think creatively to use things for purposes other than their intended one. Also, plastic blocks wash so easily! My son was reluctant to start because he didn't want to get his blocks dirty, but once he started I couldn't get him to stop.
1. Gather your materials. You will need some paper, some plates, paint and plastic blocks.
2. Pour your paint into some plates. I do them individually for this project since you want the individual shapes to show up.
3. Dip in your blocks.
4. Start painting!
5. Repeat with your other blocks.
