Start by squeezing open each clothespin and attaching one pom pom to the clothespin. Do this for the remaining clothespins and pom poms.

*Note: When kids are doing this activity, remind them not to squeeze the clothespin as they are painting or the pom pom will fall out.

Next, pour a small amount of each color of paint onto a paper plate. Make certain that you leave room between the paint so that the paints do not mix together.

Once done, take and use one clothespin and pom pom for each color of the paint. Dip the pom pom into the paint and dab about 10 dots of the first color of paint onto the canvas. Try to spread out the colors on the canvas.
