My Crafty Kids love to paint at home. We seek inspiration from our beautiful surroundings over here in Ireland and my kids having a growing interest in art history. We are always looking for new ways to work art projects into our activities and we love to experiment with different painting techniques as we go along.

Painting is the ultimate rainy day activity. It’s quick and easy to set up and it’s the perfect activity for kids of all ages to do together. You can either leave your kids free to paint with their own imaginations and a few simple paints and brushes or you can set up a more structured themed art project.

Here are just a few of our favourite kids arts projects to get your own creative juices flowing. What will you paint with your kids this week?
