Spitter Spatter fun with paint

Today me and my son (who’s 3,5 years old and loves doing crafts, especially painting and getting messy) took our paints outside for some spitter spatter fun. I saw this fabulous idea on http://www.puttisworld.com/2011/04/super-fun-splat-art.html#  just the other day and immediately knew I had to try this. 
While I was pouring paints in plastic containers and diluting them with some water, my son cut some foam  (I was going to use sponges but then saw the leftover  foam of a cushion project and thought this would be a perfect way to use it up).

Just dip the foam in paint, place them on a piece of  paper (we used black cardstock) and smash away with a spatula and see the excitement on their face.

As usually he was on a roll, luckily we were outside and I didn’t have to worry too much about the mess.
he started by pooring paint on paper and walking through it.

and to end the fun he made hand impressions, because what is more fun than covering your hands completely with paint?!?

Oh yeah, I had a "spatter" accident today, a bottle of paint fell out of my hands and fell on the floor where of coarse the lid broke and paint spattered everywhere, including all over me.lol.
