Creative Painting

By November 7, 2012

Follow me on:

Next time you gather your kids around the table or easel to paint a masterpiece, forget about the usual paints and paint brushes.

Encourage your kids and everyone else to experiment with using different items to paint, such as a cotton swab, a feather, marbles, and that is just the beginning! I bet you can find much more. Dig through your fridge and cupboards to find interesting things to use as paint, such as pudding or Kool Aid! Heck, you can even make your own paint! Learn just how creative you can get when painting with kids!
