My son came home from summer camp the other day obsessed by magnets. My husband set up all kinds of activities for him but I wanted to work them into an art project. I set out a plastic tray and taped some paper inside. Then I added some magnetic objects like washers and screws, and provided a magnet wand.

My son chose some colors of Apple Barrel paint and squirted some red and orange onto the paper. We placed a few magnetic objects onto the paper, then moved them around by moving the magnet wand around underneath the tray. Magnet Painting - a fun process art activity for kids

The wand dragged the items through the paint, creating some fun designs.Magnet Painting - a fun process art activity for kids

When all the paint was used up, we decided the picture was complete!
