Plastic Easter egg painting
This activity is a fun way to paint if you have saved plastic Easter eggs from Easter. Kids can make different designs and patterns with the circle shape of the Easter eggs.
Kids love painting on different mediums, and I always have foil in the house, making this a perfect kids activity.
Just supply a sheet of foil per child and add paint for an easy art activity for your kids.
Oh what a fun and messy activity this is! Kids splat paint with rice in a stocking.
I like this activity because it is a great gross motor activity, where kids use their arms and legs and have some messy fun. All you need are rice, stockings and paper and paint to do this activity.
Kids take the rice filled stocking, dip it into paint and make beautiful splat painting art with it.
White crayon art
I bet it’s fun for kids to see words, shapes or pictures form when they paint over the drawn on white crayon. And you can repeat this activity as over and over again with different designs.
This is such an interesting and easy activity. You freeze a block of ice and let your kids paint it.
Cherry blossom cottonball painting
I like how this cotton ball painting activity helps kids create a beautiful art work easily and kids of all ages can do this painting. You also only need a few supplies to do this activity.
ABC paint match
I like this activity because it is a very simple activity where you only need paint, paper and paint brushes to do the activity with your kids.
This butterfly painting activity is really simple and something you can do with your kids without needing too much supplies. You only need paint and paper and a paintbrush to do this activity.
Cardboard rolls flower printing
I always have paint and cardboard rolls in the house so this is a nice and simple activity to do with kids. You can make different cuts in the roll and have different designs.
Muddy pigs sensory play
This activity for kids is messy play without the mess.
Everything is contained in a bag which minimizes the mess and gives a nice sensory effect.
Cotton ball painting
I like how you create new fun paint brushes with this cotton ball painting. Just pinch cotton balls with the clothes pins and your kids are ready to play.
Frozen paint art activity
This frozen paint art and sensory activity is so simple and it makes painting interesting again. Depending on the temperature of the weather it will be a different experience. In warmer weather it will be quicker to melt and in colder temperatures it will be slower to melt. But either way it will be fun to paint with frozen ice and can go together with a frozen theme.
I like this activity because kids get to practice their creativity skills, by making their own weather painting from scraps and paint.
It’s a great fine motor and sensory activity, and they get something that they can be proud of at the end.
Kitchen tools as paintbrushes
This activity takes painting to the next level, by using kitchen tools as paint brushes.
A potato masher would make awesome prints if paired with paint and paper. And I wonder what a fork and cookie cutters would look like. Fun!
