    Out of all the crafts on here, of course my pre-schooler would go beserk over the fly swatter painting! How in the world do you keep that in check?? :-)

      If you notice we were outside ;) Also using craft paper will help because it’s thick so even if they swat hard with lots of paint it shouldn’t rip. If you are worried about going off paper I would set a few ground rules, and make a border with tape – explain that they can only swat in the tape, or the swatter goes away. Also you can try giving him numbers – like swat it 5 times, get more paint, then swat it 3 times… keep going . It will keep him more focused if you are worried about it unleashing his destructive side.

      Overall I think you will be surprised by how focused he’ll be… I hope.
