Kid Activity: Painting With Toys

Here’s a way to mix art time with playtime: use a (washable) toy to apply paint to paper. We used some old toy cars to roll in paint and then make a fun painting. My sons enjoyed using this unusual paint brush to make unique paintings.

Project Materials:
  • A car, or other washable toy
  • Washable paint
  • Paper
  • Paint brush (optional)
  • Palette of some sort (we used a plate)

To do:

Apply paint (or let child do it! My 2 year old loves this part) to palette. Roll, dip, or otherwise put toy in paint. Let kid use toy on paper!
