Nurturing the seed of Â creativity in our kids is a beautiful thing!
My love for painting and all things art was developed at a very young age and I believe it was because of all of the encouragement I received from my parents and teachers.
I still remember in Kindergarten, my teacher praising my work as if I was the next Picasso. I was far from becoming the next Picasso but she loved encouraging us. Â I am sure she did this with every child. Â My desire is to find ways to help my children explore their artistic side and nurture their creativity!
Supplies for this silhouette art project:
1. Have your kids place stickers where they want them on thick white paper. For our ocean scene I used letter stickers and fish stickers.
2. In spray bottle mixed 4 tbl of water and 1/4cp of paint, approximately.
3. Spray paint your paper.
4. Once it’s dry peel your stickers off and you have your silhouette art master piece!
Note: If your child goes wild with the spray paint you may need to dab it w/ napkins so that it will dry. You can also use masking tape to make shapes, letters, designs.
Painting is a fun creative way to express oneself.Â Here are some other fun painting projects from the Quirky Mommas:
- Things to Paint With: A Party Blower – Dip a party blower into the paint and then blow it towards the paper. What a unique idea!
- Fizzing Sidewalk Paint-Â Sidewalk chalk is fun, painting is fun, making things fizz is also fun! Letâ€™s do all three
- Preschool Craft: Shaving Cream Painting – By mixing tempera paint into a cup of shaving cream, your paint will go farther, the colors will be more brilliant as they dry and the paint is no longer spill-able as the shaving cream makes it stick to the cup.
