Paint Twister

April 18th, 2017


If this is co-ed I suggest having two twister mats, *children’s finger paint colors blue, green, yellow, and red.

Set Up

Advise students to wear clothing that can get messy before playing, also best if played outside in the grass.

Before starting the game, put corresponding colors of finger paint on each color on the twister mat. You don’t need to put a lot of paint on, it will get really messy really fast.


Have boys play on one mat and girls play on another and play just like regular Twister. Last one standing wins!

*Some sites will say use Tempra paint, but no matter what it says, Tempra does stain. Children’s washable finger paint works best at coming off of skin. Clothing might still get stained, but it comes right off skin.
