Comb painting

Is the activity my children chose to do today. We took cheap plastic combs and put two globs of paint wherever they chose, then they used the combs to "paint". 

Each person used their comb differently, and some used the comb and their fingers to paint.

I love that kind of stuff : )  We have done marble painting, glue and sand art, paint blotting (like ink blotting), and bubble painting with straws, but never comb painting.

We haven't done marble painting yet... I need to find a good box to stick the paper in.

Hubby doesn't want the kids to use eating dishes (including pans) for paints...

Oh I totally understand. This was an old one I keep for activities and such, not one I use : )
