Last weeks Tuesday Tots featured over 100 ideas and some great new Painting Techniques to try with your tots. We love painting, but unless we’re printing with something to hand (like our toy animals) we tend to stick to brushes. Three painting techniques stood out to me and I’m featuring them this week.
First off is some natural painting techniques from Mummy Musings and Mayhems with seed pod stamping – I can’t wait to try this in our autumn when we have seed heads again and will be growing some poppies this year for their seed head patterns in our garden.
Have a child that doesn’t like getting messy – then why not create our Mess Free Painted Canvas it even lights up.
Check out this fun natural painting techniques over on Adventures at home with mum with some Mud process painting with utensils – perfect for where ever you are, create some mud and get painting yourself.
Make your own Scratch Art and use it to create beautiful vibrant pictures.
Give painting without brushes a try with this Yarn Painting activity.
Ditch the brushes and paint using items from the home and toy box perfect for using with toddlers.
Potatoes make a great tool for painting and this Potato Tessellation Project is ideal for working in some math to the art project as well.
You don’t have to use your normal paint to create artwork – give our Baking Soda Painting a try for a different take on Painting with your tots.
Lastly is giving kids real painting tools to get painting from Miss Courtney Meets Bobo – this looks such a lot of fun and reminds me of the fence painting that we did with J when he was just under 2.
