This is a fun activity for little ones as it's messy and noisy too. You could use any sort of balls, but the dimples on the golf balls give an interesting paint effect. They also make a great sound as you shake them in the tube.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
3 golf balls
3 containers for paint
Tube with ends (a cylindrical tin or a potato chip tube is ideal)
Paper
Paint

Close the tube. Then shake, rattle and roll!
Carefully remove the paper to reveal your golf ball print
Try again seeing what different patterns you can make by shaking just a little or a lot. You can also try adding different amounts of paint.
