Painting Ideas Activity Calendar – fun kids painting techniques

The theme for our July kids activity calendar is  'get painty'! We have put together a list of 31 fun painting techniques for kids to have fun with. There are lots of painting ideas for toddlers and preschoolers as well as some for babies and older kids. These process art painting ideas are all about having fun with paint, don't worry too much about what the final piece of artwork looks like (although some do look amazing!)


Painting Ideas Activity Calendar – 31 fun painting techniques for kids. Process art painting ideas for toddlers and preschoolers (as well as babies and older kids).



Take a look at all our themed monthly kids activity calendars. Each month we base our activities around a different theme. The June summer themed activity calendar would be fun for July, as would the bug and butterfly activity calendar.

To use this 'get painty' themed activity calendar simply download the calendar using the link at the bottom of the page. Save a copy of the calendar and then click on the images each day to be taken to full instructions. There are 31 paint themed activities to choose from, one for each day of the month.  Either do an activity a day or choose a few of your favourite to try out during the month of July.

Painting is always so much fun and perfect for all ages! We have tried out so many fun painting activity ideas over the years and they always go down well with the kids. Don't worry too much about how you want the finished artwork to look, often it looks nothing like what is imagined. Some of the artwork created does look pretty effective though!   

We have added a painting technique for each day of July in the list below. Have fun and enjoy getting messy! Take a look at the list below to see what we have included this month.
