Trace the shape of the lid of a container onto a white piece of paper. Cut out the shape so that it is smaller than the inside of the lid. Place a small amount of paint on the inside of the lid, then place the paper on the inside of the lid. Pour a small amount of red paint inside of the bowl and place a few acorns (without the caps) or marbles inside the bowl. Have your child turn the bowl upside down and shake. When finished remove the paper and allow to dry.
