Let Kids Paint // Cardboard Canvas Painting
Tuesday, July 9, 2013
Apparently, when we have empty cardboard boxes around the house, it gives me lots of ideas for keeping kids busy.
Yesterday, I decided to turn an old box into a couple of art canvases and set up a little painting station in our yard. Kiddos loved it. Sister chose to do a family portrait and brother went for more of an abstract design. ;)
We just use Crayola washable paints, available at any craft store. And the canvases were just leaned against plastic lawn chairs. Keep it simple! I am a huge proponent of letting kids get messy and using their imaginations. But clean up was actually very easy for this since it was outdoors and I kept the paints and brushes on a tray.
