PROCESS/SENSORY ART - See the colours mixing, feel the paint against fingers, hear the splat hitting the paper, smell the paint...evaluate the marks as they're made with different splatter tools.

GROSS MOTOR: Vary the size of objects (swinging/squeezing/throwing) for a gross motor activity.

SCIENCE: experiment using gravity (dropping splat balls from different heights) as a science activity.
