Get a large re-sealable zipper storage bag, cut some card to fit and place it inside. Squeeze some paint into the bag, and seal it.

Then hand it to your child! They can squish the paint around and create great patterns.

When the child has finished, just open the bag, remove the card and leave to dry. No clean-up required! You can use as many colours as you like. Different effects can be achieved if you add few small sponges into the bag which have been slightly dampened.

Here are couple of examples of artwork we have created in a bag:
