 17 Ways to Play, Learn and Create with Tempera PaintI was looking through our photos over the weekend and came across these pics of Pebble have a great time in the summer sunshine, exploring with tempura paints. I had grabbed a few bits and pieces from our art cupboard and our kitchen, then Pebble spent a lovely afternoon scooping, sprinkling, squeezing and spraying.

It was lots of fun and made me want to look for more things to do with our tempera paint stash. I found sixteen more super fun ways to play, create and learn with this colourful powder. Read on to find out more about how Pebble played and more fun ideas.

  1. I bought two containers of tempera paint the other week for 70% at our local toy store. We haven’t used them yet mostly because I wasn’t quite sure how to go about it. Now I have lots of ideas :)

    The store only had white and green on sale so that’s the only colours we have. I would love to get a whole range of colours. Where do you get yours from?
