Allow Your Toddler’s Inner-Artist Out
Ideas or Inquiries
Do you miss our Paint Window in Ella’s Art Studio? We do, too! Make your own at home, using water-based art supplies!
- A window
- Water based markers
- Washable paint – we like Tempera Paint, but Watercolor also can work!
- If using paint:
- Small cups
- Paint or sponge brushes
- Old sheet or towels to be a drop cloth, if you feel it’s needed
- Chair or stool, if the window is high up for your child
This activity is limited only by your – and your child’s – creativity!
- Lay down the optional drop cloth and set up the stool if necessary.
- If you’re using paint, put a little paint in each cup and put a brush in each.
- We found that children can hold onto the cup, and it creates less chance of paint spillage.
- Let your little get as creative as they would like! If you need some inspiration, some ideas could be:
- Can you paint your family?
- Can you paint your pet (or a desired pet)?
- Can you paint what you see through the window?
