Wubbzy Ball / Humpfs Floppy Thing

Wubbzy Ball / Humpfs Floppy Thing


This is another simple painting activity for toddlers. It gives them the opportunity to experiment with the paint brush by making lines and spots. They also have the opportunity to do a bit of colour mixing.

You will need paper plates, large paintbrush, a bowl for the paint, blue & white paints and protection for the table, the child, you, your walls, chairs and anything else remotely within reach !

  • First the paper plate needs to be painted blue. This gives the child the opportunity to try and control the brush by painting lines across the plate until it is covered
  • Whilst the plate is drying add some white paint to the bowl and let the child mix the paint together until they get light blue.
  • Then they add the spots to the 'ball' using either their fingers or the brush.

Painted plate ball

This activity can also be used for Humpf fans. In one of the episodes his ball is punctured and ends up as "a floppy thing".
