Types of Paint
Acrylic is the most popular, as it is cheap and comes in bold colours. It has a thick texture and easily available in “washable” versions.
Tempera paint is also quite cost effective and is great for colour mixing and blending. It also has washable options.
Or you could make you own paint! When my son was younger we made some toddler-safe paint from Jello Pudding mix and also some made from cornstarch and food dye.
Methods of Painting
Yes, you could go with a paintbrush but what about a foam brush or textured roller? Here at Craftulate we have tried many different methods of painting that don’t involve paintbrushes, including scourers and scrubbers, bubble wrap, combs and mesh fruit bags!
Uses of Paint
Well, I don’t think I’ll attempt a complete list as I’m not sure it is possible! From toddler finger painting to making handprints, from making Christmas decorations to painting a shoe box to make a school bus – paint is essential!!
Does Paint = Mess? No!
So get painting with your kids today! 🙂
