bottle cap to hold for sponge painting

This looks too COOL - Oil, water, food coloring, and paper = easy art

Wet Chalk Tape Resist Art - great independent art activity

Mess For Less: Hot Glue Crayon Rubbings

Glitter stick - make these instead of having little kids use loose glitter. Very smart!

Divide the page into 6 squares and paint each one a different colour. When dry experiment with different prints on each square. Children draw themselves with a sharpie, then cut out and stick over printing. Gorgeous!

Enjoy neon squirt bottle painting!

Painting with Watercolors, Glue and Salt

Make colored sand art by stirring a chalk stick in a bowl of salt...it changes the color. Stir less for light color and more for dark richer color. Probably way cheaper than buying sand

Make Your Own POP Rock Paint - this paint makes popping sounds while kids create and fizzles between fingers when used as a finger paint- seriously way too fun! (BONUS- they have Pop Rocks at Dollar Tree)

make paint brushes with natural materials.....or Fairy Brooms :)

painting-----paper plate paint palette for kids

Tile Painting-I used to do this years ago - and then forgot about it. I am so glad to see the idea again. I believe I also had loose tiles - square - triangle - rectangle in varying sizes that the kids could lay out in a temporary design, paint and make a print from.

So fun to do with kids (blue tape with watercolor painted over it).
