This project has almost infinite options, but we have chosen to show you a couple of techniques for creating one-of-a-kind works of art.

Get your little ones involved and help them learn letters while developing their fine motor skills.

It may get messy, but isn’t that half the fun of crafting? We think so.

Supplies:

  • Poster board and picture frames or pre-stretched canvases, in desired sizes
  • Craft paint or finger paint
  • Paintbrushes or little hands
  • Painter’s or artist tape in various widths (removable adhesive)
  • Letter stickers, if desired
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  • Protect surface if needed.

  1. If using poster board, measure and cut to fit the frames before painting and use frame to determine specific word placement.
  2. Use tape and/or stickers to create patterns and words (if desired) on poster board or canvas. — You can also use tape to make letters and help them spell their names or other words.
  3. Let children paint as desired with hands or brushes.
  4. Remove tape and stickers while paint is still damp.

Once you are happy with the finished product, frame and/or hang. These also make great gifts for family and friends.

We would love to see the paintings your little artists create. Please send them to: mlavine@UpstateParent.com.
