I adore art projects that use household materials in new ways. This paper towel painting lesson does just that. A little marker and a few watercolors and you won’t even recognize that paper towel!
Creating a paintbrush out of an unusual material, such as pasta, brings an element of fun to this process art activity. Spaghetti paintbrushes and some food coloring paint make for a super fun art project straight out of the pantry.

Spring is coming, I promise. I live in Ohio so this time of year I have to keep saying that out loud to convince myself as the cold wind whips outside. These floral mandalas don’t require any help from Mother Nature but will totally brighten your mood just like the real thing.
Color mixing is one of the things that can be explored at any age, any intensity, and over and over without getting stale. This quick color mixing exercise can be done with just a couple of supplies that are easy to find at the local dollar store- so you can try it today!
String pull art is about as process oriented as art gets. You get to make a few choices then it’s all action and a bit of chance. These fun little creatures start by pulling a string but take it a bit further by adding some details to create some funky looking creatures.
Color is one of my favorite topics to focus on when teaching little people. Everyone can relate to color! If identifying primary colors is an obvious place to start then mixing secondary colors is an obvious next step! What are secondary colors and how to make them is a lesson suitable for any age!
My kids adore giving gifts. Sometimes being the giver is almost more fun than getting a present yourself. Wrapping it up in homemade wrapping paper is extra special touch for that just right gift your kiddo has picked out!
