Painting Techniques for Tots


This week on Tuesday Tots I’m featuring some fun painting techniques from people who have joined in with our weekly playdate for the under 5’s hosted by myself, Growing a Jeweled Rose, Learn with Play at Home and In Lieu of Preschool.

Growing together this week shared some homemade milk paint which they have used to paint some out door equipment.

Le Baby Bakery put aside the paint brushes and used cars to paint with and then had a lot of fun with a pretend car wash after they had finished painting.

Octavia and Vicky shared 6 fun painting techniques this week (and also had a gorgeous little baby congratulations) great for your little tots this week.

Cookie cutter printing is one of T’s favourite activities and Train up a Child shared some spring themed cookie cutter printing this week.

Tracing is great for working on pen control and what a fun way to do it with q tips over on 3 Dinosaurs.

Putti’s World has 2 fun painting techniques for some Easter themed fun – the first sticker resist painting of some Easter Eggs and then some Mono Prints using foam plates to create some Easter Eggs.

Fun at home has created a wonderful black glue water colour painting – it reminds me so much of glass painting and/or silk painting that I want to give it a try very soon with the kids to create some window artwork.

    me want a single even a lot more! I believe I could wait for that 2nd/3rd generation to come
    out… (If i can wait that long!)It is amazing just how considerably you are
    able to do, I currently have an iPhone and also have the wordpress app that’s actually useful for keeping up to date with all my customers blogs.From an iPad stage of view the Gusto app and adobe tips seem like they might be probably the most helpful!Thanks for sharing
