Simple Painting Ideas for Toddlers

I was feeling arty and inspired today so Miss M and I did some simple painting activities together. You've probably seen them elsewhere before, I'm certainly not claiming them as new ideas - just wanted to share what we've been up to.


I love this first one because it is literally NO MESS! Simply put a piece of paper into a tub, squirt a few blobs of paint, place a small ball inside, put the lid on and ask your toddler to shake it all around! (Tip: marbles would probably work better - but we just used what we had - a plastic golf ball).


Miss M and I were both too curious to see what was happening inside the box that we took the lid off and rolled it around a bit more. "Wowee!" she says :)

--------


The next idea is called Tape Resist Painting. All you need to do is grab some painters tape (because it will remove much easier) and stick it all over a large sheet of paper. Miss M loves painting with her hands so that's what we did. Even when I try and give her the bush, she starts painting her own hands lol!


When the paint is dry, carefully remove the painters tape. Magic to a toddler's eyes!

Well, thanks for stopping by. It's been a wonderful Saturday to have some blogging time :)

  1. I like the pattern given by the golf ball. I wonder how it would mix if you put various sizes of marbles with it?

  10. House painting is not something that everybody can do - it is labor-intensive, physically challenging, time-consuming and messy. On the other hand, hiring a professional to do the task may seem to be a costlier option. It is also a challenge trying to locate a reliable house painter.

  11. Do you know about the postponing tasks later is an occupational disease for some teachers. Teachers who procrastinate do other things than work or do nothing. And the result is the same: the work to be done is postponed. But why are they postponing their tasks? The discouragement in the face of the heavy responsibilities towards the pupils, and society. They think the little things will be done in a minute. The solution? It is better to make a list of different actions to be carried out, starting with small tasks, that is to say that will not require too much time on a daily basis. For more repetitive tasks, such as correcting copies, we could therefore allow 15 or 30 minutes of correction over x days to reach the end of its stack, rather than 4 hours day before rendering copies. Start your day with guts(.)pk/shop/ the task you push back. We apply the principle here: do what must be done and not what is easy.
