Painting Activites With Kids in Mind


Kids love paint! We thought of some ideas for painting with kids besides the old stand by of paint brushes we always put out! Ger ready, get set.....GO!

Paint with Everything But the Brush:
Q-tips or cotton swabs
Cotton Balls
Fingers
Toes
Rags
Toothpick
Twigs or sticks
Feathers
Toothbrush
String or yarn
Swoosh balls
Balloons
Cat or dog toys
Squirt bottles
Yarn
Straws
Rubber bands
Marbles
Branches with leaves
Flowers
Toilet Plungers (Thanks Jenni!)
We know we missed some! What do you like to paint with?

Fly swaters
Toilet Plungers (clean ones)
koosh balls
panty hose
toy cars

I know there's more, those are some of our favorites that I see often!

LOL! Hi Jenni,
I never did plungers before!
Clean is good!
Thanks!

Once you do plungers you'll never go back! Put out some pie tins full of paint, put large strip of butcher paper/large easel paper/ or I've even done a white cloth and ended up with a fabulous decoration for the classroom, secure it to the floor because, really, this is easier to paint while standing, and let them go! Awesome fun!

@ Jenni
I will have to add your idea in, Jenni! Love it!


It does that all kinds to make a world, doesn't it? Especially to appreciate the beauty we have around us!
