Painting Fun

I thought it would be a fun project for the kids to do a kind of sticker resist painting. I was inspired after seeing this post at PlayDrMom. I thought the shamrock painting was super cute however I was not able to find the die-cut shamrock stickers. I still wanted to do some kind of painting like this. So instead of using stickers, I decided to use painter’s tape to make our initials. I was able to find 8 x 10 inch white canvases at Micheal’s. I had the craft paint at home from previous projects as well as painter’s tape.  The kids had so much fun with this project and it ended up being a great room decoration for them also.

What you need:

  • 8 x 10 inch white canvas
  • Craft paint (multiple colors)
  • Paint brushes
  • Painter’s tape
  • Paper towels and paper plates

What to do:

1. Using the painter’s tape, create your design on your canvas.

2. Make your paint palette on the paper plate.

3. Paint the entire canvas.

4. Allow to dry for a few minutes.

5. Remove the painter’s tape carefully.
