FREE Preschool Dance Activity: Paint the Town With Confetti
Don’t worry, there are no messes here! Dancers are only pretend painting, and the confetti is actually just shapes cut from glitter foam sticker paper. There is no crafting for the kids, just a few simple things for you to set the sparkly scene for this fun activity!
Before class, you will need to do a little bit of prep work. There are ways to do this activity in a more simple fashion, or you can go full out! You can guess which direction our Most Extra selves went, and that is the detail we are sharing! But, we also give you hints and shortcuts on how you can simplify if you want to!
- 2-3 foam core boards
- Colorful paints
- Paint brushes for painting
- Paint brushes for props
- 3 Silver cans that look like paint cans
- Glitter foam sheets in multiple colors (even better if you can find the ones with a sticky backing, but not required)
- Double-sided tape (if your glitter foam sheets are not sticky)
- Sticker letters
- Pom pom balls, sequins and rhinestones
- Hot glue gun
Setting the Scene
Cityscape: First, we crafted a cityscape from colored foam core. We set them up against photo backdrop paper, but you can use a blanket, tumbling mats, your mirror, or even just the wall! You can also just draw city shapes on your mirror with erasable markers if you want to keep it simple.
Paint Cans: We crafted a paint can for each color we used in our cityscape, making it very obvious which color is which. On a label on the outside of a can, we wrote out a specific dance step in sticker letters. We chose tap for our activity, but you can easily change the steps to ballet or creative movement! Anything goes!
Sparkly “Confetti”: Cut the glitter foam sheets into various abstract shapes – the more random, the better. Don’t cut them too small or it will require a lot more effort. We recommend that you go ahead and start some of the buildings so the kids will know what to do when it is their turn to stick the confetti on the building. You can have strips of double-sided tape already torn to hand out to each dancer or even already placed on the backs of the confetti pieces for easy sticking!
Paint Brush Props: Take a regular paint brush and add some sparkle to it with pom pom balls, rhinestones, and any other fun + crafty decor you have on hand. Dancers will simply use these as props during the activity (the same way they would use a wand), so they will not actually be using them for paint. Check out our crafty Reel for some colorful inspo!
Extra Fun: If you have disco balls to add to the fun or, even better, a disco strobe light, your dancers will really feel like they are out for a fun night on the town!
Paint the Town with Confetti!
With your city scene set and your paint buckets ready, it’s time to dance and paint the town with confetti! Start with the first paint bucket color and demonstrate the step. Once the entire class completes it correctly, everyone can take a piece of confetti from the paint can and place it on the correct building anywhere they would like! Repeat until all steps have been successfully completed and your cityscape will become a confetti-tastic masterpiece! You can then have each dancer choose their favorite step and add another piece to the cityscape
After they have painted the town with confetti, pass out their fancy paint brush props. Teach them a couple 8 counts of choreography incorporating the steps from the paint cans as additional reinforcement. Make sure to add in lots of swaying arms for “painting” the town.
