Lesson Objectives

Learn about shapes, colours, and spatial relationships

Enhance social skills like turn taking, group work, and sharing of paints

Promote communication and language development

Help students to learn and explore their world through sensory playing

Encourage motor development through activities that strengthen hand and finger muscles

Children’s interests/prior Knowledge

Children’s knowledge of colours and vocabulary for describing textures is important. Learners should also show interest in painting.


Hand paint

Bench-top or table

Sheets of paper


Waterproof aprons


Description of Experience/Procedure

Educator sets up painting surface, the paint, and cleaning materials. As the lesson begins, students wear waterproof aprons and paint is spread on trays. The teacher asks children to name the colour of the paint. Children also move their hand through the paint to discover its texture. The educator also place one hand into the paint then makes prints on a sheet of paper to illustrate to children the lesson’s activity. Learners should copy what the teacher does.





After hand painting, the teacher asks the children to describe the colour and texture of the paint they have used, and how easy or difficult they found the activity.




Educator guides children through the process of setting up hand paints to learn about solubility and changes in colour of paints before and after adding water. They should know how adding water affects colour and texture of the paint.

Pedagogical Practices (Teaching Strategies)  

Educator’s role

Provides the materials required for hand painting, demonstrates the process, and guides children through the activity while making observations. In all these, educator ensures that lesson’s objectives are achieved.


Open-ended Questions

How familiar are the children with painting activities?

How can hand painting be made more enjoyable, and still meet the objectives of this lesson?


Evaluation of Experience


Assessment/documentation for children’s learning:

Linking to EYLF Outcome/s


Tick one relevant outcome and provide rationale

LO1: Children have a strong sense of identity

LO2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world

LO3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

LO4: Children are confident and involved learners

LO5: Children are effective communicators



Children demonstrated effective use language to share ideas and information within groups and with the entire class. They described colours and textures of the different paints they used.

Future Planning

Guide children to make paints by mixing different colours and observe what happens. The children may also observe changes in paint textures when they add other items such as sand and powder.
