3 Easy Painting Ideas For the Kids! ?

Does your child love to paint and engage in creative expression?  Here are three unique and easy painting activities you can do at home!

1.  Salt Painting
Salt absorbs liquid paint which makes for unique textures!  Simply draw an outline with pencil on a good quality watercolor paper.  Then use glue to outline the drawing (over the pencil.)  Pout a good amount of salt onto the glue and allow the glue to dry.  Mix food coloring with water to create a “watercolor paint.”  Use a dropper to add color to the salt and watch the creation come to life!  ?? ?? https://littlebinsforlittlehands.com/salt-painting/

Mix black acrylic paint with 3 parts glue 1 part black acrylic paint.  Outline a drawing in pencil and then with the black glue.  Let the black glue dry overnight.  Then use watercolors to fill in the rest of the artwork!    ?? https://www.artycraftykids.com/art/black-glue-jellyfish-art/

3.  Paint with Nature Brushes
Go on a nature walk with the kids and collect different types of leaves or dry material that could be used as a paintbrush.  Have fun experimenting with the different effects you can create using the different materials!  ?? https://www.messylittlemonster.com/2015/07/stick-craft-nature-paintbrushes.html
