Around here we do enjoy getting our paint on. There are no excuses – put on some old clothes, get outside, fill a bucket with warm soapy water and go get messy!

Foot Printing

Shaving Foam Prints

DIY Bath Paint

Foam Stampers

  2. Really nice round up, we love painting, but surprisingly have never done feet painting, think we should try this one (outside!)

  3. Hi Kylie. Wonderful ideas. I used a few of those myself when the kids were small. They’re not so interested in it now rather opting for different media like crayons or felt pens. Make the most of it while they’re young I reckon. Thanks so much for sharing at Thriving on Thursdays. I’m featuring this at tomorrow’s party.

  5. Fantastic selection of painting activities – I’ve never done bath paints as worried if I start making bath time fun it will be even more trouble getting the kids out at the end of the day ;).

    Thank you for linking up to Tuesday Tots and letting you know that I will be featuring this over on Rainy Day Mum this week.

  7. I was looking for an activity for my 3 year old today and decided to try the shaving cream prints. So glad I did! She had a blast and I thought the final product was very cool. Especially since it was a quick set up and clean up. We are looking forward to trying the other painting activities. Thanks for posting!
