I hope you are all keeping safe and well. All children love to paint no matter what age they are. All you need for these ideas are paints and resources to paint with. These can be done as a family or leaving your child to creative by them self. Here are a few ideas to get arty and add some fun colour to isolation life.
1. Painting with ear buds is fun and reduces spillages and mess. Whether you leave your child to design there own painting or you give them a template, start them off by dipping the end of your ear bud in paint and watch the colours emerge.
2. Printing with blocks. This is a brilliant way to get your child identifying shapes whilst having fun. You can get them to tell you which shape is which , which shape is the biggest. Why not identify colours together ? Children will be learning whilst having fun with family.
3. Hand prints. Why not make one big peice of paper and all do a hand print together. Use many different colours to brighten up your day during isolation. Here your child can tell you who has the biggest hand to who has the smallest hand. If you have a paw friend why not put there paw in mud and get them to print on the paper to.
4. Mixing colours. This is a fun way to get yout child experimenting with colour. You can guide them with what two colours make what or you can let them explore them self and see what beautiful coloirs emerge.
Happy painting readers stay safe. 🎨
