Painting is a creative process. You don’t have to limit yourself to just using a paintbrush. I sent my kids hunting around the house for anything that they thought they could paint with.
This is what they came up with:
You can paint with just about anything.
- clothespin with a cotton ball
- apples carved into shapes
- carrots, cut them in half and use the flat end
- erasers, just as they are or carved into shapes
- sponges, cut into shapes
- silicone basting brush
- dish scrub brush
- marbles, drop some paint onto the paper and then let the marbles roll around (See details on marble painting here)
- spray bottle, filled with a mixture of paint and water
- your fingers
- bubble wrap
Get creative. I set my kids loose and they painted for hours. They haven’t had that much fun in a long time.
This art project is all about the process. We didn’t end up with any framable art (although we did pop a few on the fridge for a few days) but my kids had fun and they made some great memories together. That’s what counts.
