“Window Painting”

Kids love to play with paint, make a mess and they also love to draw on the walls… How about mashing all that together and keep the mess aside! HOW? By keeping all in a bag! Can’t remember where i saw this idea but its pretty simple and would have your littles entertained for a bit and you only need 3 things!!

1. Paints
2. Medium size Ziploc Bags
3. Masking Tape

It’s pretty fool-proof to do this project. Your littles could help you out too!

First you get your paints.

I find these paints pretty good they are also pretty cheap. Got these ones for RM3.70 a bottle. We use them for painting with both brushes and finger painting. Washes off pretty easy too. Dunno about on walls, carpets and couches though… eeeeekkk..

Next, you get your Ziploc bag ready. 20150604_143548

Any sort of ziplock is fine and long as it locks up coz if you use any sort of bag, you’re done with and the littles might as well paint on the windows.. LOL

 

20150604_143559Fill in about 2 table spoons of paint into each bag. Let out almost all the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Finally, get your masking tape and tape each paint filled bag onto a window or sliding window.

 

 

 

And viola! It’s done! This may seem a bit messy but it was a spur of the moment kinda thing but I hope, if you give it a try, your littles will enjoy it. Mine certainly do.

Arts and Crafts for Kids – Art Box

arts and crafts for kids

Arts and crafts is what Ariana and I love doing together. Because Ariana has sooooo much stationary, we decided to make an art box. It was very simple and it was inspired by something Ariana has watched on youtube which made her love doing it even more.

What you need to make an art box:

  • shoe box
  • golf ball
  • water colour paints
  • paper plate for the paint

Using one colour at a time, squeeze paint on a paper plate. Have your little one take the golf ball and roll it into the paint and coat the ball. Put the cover back on the box (don’t worry if your little ones painty fingers get on the cover, it gives a personal touch) and have your child shake and slide the box in all directions letting the ball roll all over the box creating cool lines. Repeat these steps as many times as you like with other colours.

It’s never a bore when it comes to arts and crafts for kids, it’s even better when they can paint with their hands and keep it messy. Just let it be, cleaning up paint isn’t too bad. 😉
