One of my favorite things to do with my son is to paint. As a former elementary art teacher, I found that parents are too scared to let their children paint. Fearing that the child will get paint all over the house, and it is too hard to clean up. This is so sad, that children today are not getting creative time. We have found some simple tips to help keep the mess under some control.
We live in rentals due to my husband's job in the military. So the need to keep our house extra clean is very important since we do not own it. Our last house we painted on our sliding glass doors in our kitchen. I attatched paper with painters tape on the window. In the summer we paint in our undies and in the winter older clothes. I use Crayola Finger paints and I usually have not trouble with colors not coming out.
In our current house I roll out a big roll of brown craft paper on our wood floors. Again I use painters tape and lay our our paints on paper plates.
Tomorrow I will share with you our Valentine's Card Craft, very fun and super easy with supplies you should have in your kitchen!
