Here's a great, cheap and easy activity to do with kids this summer. They're initial paintings!
Even the art-challenged parent can organize this with ease.
You'll need the following supplies:
- Canvas or thick paper
- Masking tape or painters tape
- Paint (Thicker paint if you are using a canvas. Runny paint on a canvas will run under the tape. You can use watercolors on thick paper.)
- Paint brushes (or, you could use finger paints and fingers!)
Tip: Make sure the kids paint all the white spaces on the canvas, especially around the tape, so there are clear, clean lines when you peel off the tape.
