Painting is something all kids seem to love to do! There is a wide choice of mediums and tools for painting. You can choose water colors, finger paints, or acrylics. You can use your fingers, brushes, sponges, cotton swabs and even potatoes that have been cut into fun shapes. You can even paint ON all sorts of things. Just make sure your kids know what they are allowed to paint on and what they are not, before they start!
Unless the paint they are using is washable, it’s a good idea to protect their clothes and the surface they are painting on. If your kids are older, you might consider showing them several paintings by the Masters and talk about the different styles of painting. Then you can have them see if they can duplicate a specific style. This activity does not have to require a trip to an art museum You can easily find these paintings by the Masters online. Just be careful of what you type into your search bar while your children are standing near!
