Painting with Golf Balls


We had so much fun playing with our golf tees and golf balls that I decided to use the balls again, this time for painting. We have done marble painting in the past and I wanted to try something similar with golf balls. I was curious about the results we would get since the golf balls were bigger and had some texture to them. 

Supplies you will need:
  • Paint colors of your choice
  • Golf balls
  • Shirt box
  • Paper (I used plain copy paper)

I had a Valentine's Day craft in mind for the finished product, so I used red and white paint. I squirted some in the center of the box but used a little too much and B's golf ball got kind of stuck.

I used a little less paint for C and the ball traveled more smoothly.

After a while, B wanted another golf ball to add to the mix.

I love how the red and white would combine to make pink.

The tracks made by the golf balls were so unique because of their texture. Here is show off A, painting with 3 golf balls.

This was a messy activity but the kids painted page after page. Stay tuned to see what we end up doing with our golf ball paintings.
