I’m not very good at planning art projects but I still like to find ways to encourage my son to explore his creative side. I set up this very simple last minute art idea. It’s perfect for preschoolers and even to entertain toddlers. It also turned into a great distraction for him and kept him busy while I could get a few things done.
Seven easy steps!
Step 1. Put paper on floor
Step 2. Squirt paint on plastic take-out tray
Step 3. Give Kiddo empty tape roll and bubble wrap envelope
Step 4. Go about one’s business while Kiddo explores
Step 5. Get more paper and paint upon request.
Step 6. Go about one’s business
Step 7. Hours later clean up stray paint on floor (thank you, washable paint).
I particularly like the footprints! Art and a keepsake all in one!
P.S. I saved the art for wrapping paper to use later. Pretty, right?
