The whole country is spending extra time inside right now, so we are going to share a series of posts with ideas on fun things you can do with your kids! From arts and crafts to science experiments and holiday inspired ideas! So today, we are starting with a few easy painting ideas you can do at home with your kids- big or small.
Start with a piece of canvas paper or thick and use pieces of tape to create a design. It can be simply lines across the paper, words spelt out or a shape (heart, circle, etc.). Then chose colors you know will go well together or colors your kid chooses. We chose to go with various shades of blue. While the kid in the photo is using a paint brush, our toddler quickly ditched the paintbrush and used his hands. There is no right or wrong way to do this! Let the paint dry and remove the tape for a fun design!
Have your kids go outside and find fun sized rocks. If the weather is nice, they can paint outside. If it’s’ chilly, they can paint inside. Have your kids get creative- they can make animals, cars, people or just designs!
