Paint techniques for kids

Here are some brilliant ideas for using paint in different ways. Painting with a paint brush and paper is fun of course, but there are so many other things you can use. The effects are stunning and great for gifts.

 Milk Art from Keeping My Kids Entertained

Who would have thought milk and cotton buds would produce such beautiful effects?

Making a Glass Lantern from Buggy and Buddy

This one uses paint brushes but painting on lanterns is really beautiful and fun.

Constellation Hunt from Life With Moore Babies

A great way to learn about constellations, using paint.

Goldsworthy Watercolours from Mother Of Discussion

Nature inspired art using traditional watercolour techniques.

Shaving Cream Placemat from Simply Summers

This looks so much fun. Paint and shaving cream used to make lovely leaf placemats.

Tape Resist Painting from Adam’s In the North

A simple art technique with always works well. Great for younger children.

Sparkly Firework Pinecones from Two of Everything

These pine cones are so beautiful and go to show that you don’t have to paint on paper for great effects.

Spaghetti Painting from Zayit and Ziva

You can even use spaghetti for painting – how about having a spaghetti painting party with all your friends?

Winter Birds from Like Mama Like Daughter

I love the art in this post – cute winter birds using finger prints. The hand print pictures are amazing too.
