Do your kids love to paint but you hate all the mess of it? Then this has to be something you try. It takes just a few minutes to prep and your kids will feel like they are really painting and the best part, there is NO MESS! Can you imagine a no-mess painting activity for kids?
How to Do the No-Mess Painting Activity
What you Need:
Gallon size Bags
Paints of your color choices
Thick packing tape or painters tape
Place a piece of white paper inside a gallon sized bag. Have your child tell you what colors they want and carefully add a dollop inside the bag. Seal the bag and tape it down. Let your kids go to town painting! They will have a blast and there is literally NO MESS! When they are done you simply lift up the bag from the tape and let it dry before removing their artwork 🙂
If you are in a preschool setting you can easily send home the entire bag for parents to see the full activity, or you could easily take out the white paper and allow it to dry fully then send home the painting.
My kids did this today during our rainy spring break and they both had a great time. It did occupy the almost 3-year-old but he doesn’t sit still very long for much these days. The 8-year-old loved it and did several masterpieces.
