ice painting, splat painting, bubble painting, painting on bread

Ice painting gives you the freedom and mess of painting but you get to experiment with freezing paint and watching it melt too.  We also love these taste safe ice paints.

Splatter painting is great fun and gets nice and messy.

Kids love blowing bubbles so take it one step further and do some bubble painting.

Enjoy eating your artwork! Paint an edible picture by painting on bread.  You might also like our rainbow toast and heart shaped toast. 

art techniques: freezer bag painting, cling film art, monoprinting


Even babies can join in with the simple freezer bag technique that we used to make our no mess paper plate snowflakes

Use cling film art to create less mess but amazing effects. Kids will be amazed that they aren't getting messy as they squeeze and merge the paint. 

Monoprinting is extra messy which makes it all the more fun and you can create so many different one of designs. 


art techniques: nature paint brushes, bath paints, colour mixing with coffee filters


Use coffee filters and jumbo eye droppers to have a go at colour mixing

Go on a nature walk and use the nature you collect to make nature paintbrushes.  They are great fun to paint with and they made some interesting patterns. 

Make bath time more fun by mixing up some simple bath paints



The big questions is.....which will you try first?
