Jingle Bell Art

Easy jingle bell painting using bouncy balls for kids

It’s no secret we love to explore painting and movement. My little sensory seeker still talks about our messy bouncy ball art and rhythmic pom-pom drumstick painting activities. For an easy Christmas activity, we’re using our bouncy balls to create Christmas bell art.

You’ll need the following materials:

  • Bell Template [resize during printing to 75% for ornament]
  • Bouncy Balls
  • Washable Paint
  • Bowls
  • Paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon or String

Jingle Bell Art for Kids

After gathering your supplies, print out your Christmas bell template [pictured above is the larger, full-size bell for a holiday picture]. Tape the template on a hard, covered surface.  Dip your balls in paint and bounce, bounce!

Big balls don’t bounce as high, so they are great for smaller, less messy projects like table bouncing. Smaller balls bounce super high and are great for floor bouncing with larger, outdoor process art projects.

Jingle Bell Painting

You need very little paint, a dime to quarter-size is plenty [pictured above is the smaller bell template for an ornament].  If your little one doesn’t catch the ball easily, cover the floor will a little newspaper.  We bounced lightly and made minimal mess, aside from his hands [the fun part!].

Bouncy Ball Christmas Art Activity for Preschoolers

After you’re all bounced out and dry, cut out the bell, add ribbon, and place it on the tree for an easy, kid-made ornament. For sound, add a small jingle bell to the finished ornament.

Bouncy ball art is messy fun, encourages movement for gross-motor play, and a wonderful sensory experience for kids.
