I began by getting out three tennis balls and let him go and practice bouncing them outside while I got the paint ready... Ball bouncing is actually a really tricky skill to master and it's something I'd like to do a lot more with him.
He and Amahli had a great time chasing the balls around the backyard while I set up.
I lay out two big sheets of heavy cardboard and also two containers of watercolour paint ( actually it's food colouring) and got them to put a ball in each of them.
I showed them how to roll the ball in the ink and then asked him to bounce it on the paper. It took a few goes to get it to really bounce properly but the effect was fantastic. Jared had a great time bouncing it but wasnt keen on catching it once he realised he might get back on his hands :)
