I’m joining with Blogging with Kids this month for a Paint blog hop. I thought I would share some of our favorite ways to paint. Here are 11 ways to paint with kids from Inspiration Laboratories plus many more ideas linked up in the blog hop at the bottom.
Paint with Kids
Printmaking is my favorite way to save Aiden’s creations. When I set out paints for him, I typically place them on plastic lids. More often than not, Aiden chooses to mix all of the paint on the lids rather than paint on paper or whatever surface we have for the day. Since I can’t save the paint filled lid, I press a piece of paper to it to make a print. This is how our love for printmaking began.
We painted with baking soda and vinegar. I made a print of this, too.
Making prints of string art is fun, too. This is my absolute favorite painting activity we have done yet.
Painting with Objects
Using yarn to make some really cool pulled string paintings.
Painting with cookie cutters, leaves, and fingers.
Rolling a coffee creamer bottle to make monster prints.
Painting with flowers.
Painting on Different Surfaces
Painting rocks from our rock collection.
Painting pumpkin rocks.
Painting egg cartons to carry the rock collection.
Painting cardboard to make a train counting puzzle.
