Default Art Ideas That Don't Involve Paper

We don't have any paper for art and not sure when my boss will be shopping for it. Yet she wants art done daily. What can I do with preschoolers that have no paper to use as the base? Something not crazy messy but yet still educational and fin? Maybe for winter

Do you have paper plates? I cut out the centers last week and the kids colored and glued different items on for a wreath

We did this today, and will use the cut out centers as Christmas tree ornaments.

You can also use toilet paper tubes and make snowmen, santa claus, trees anything.
Egg cartons bells, caterpillars, etc.

Does art have to be something to take home? Dry erase markers on boards is fun, group coloring/painting on newspaper.

I don't know if you tried this, but I made once with my kids tic tac toe, you only need for that a few stones and cardboard for example (you can also use some fabric, a small wooden board, a piece of plastic, anything). You can draw the net on each cardboard for the game and give them colors so they can color each stone or draw X or O on them. I gave mine two colors (red and green) so they colored the stones and they love the game.
