Making Your Own Paint Letters! Fun & Messy Child’s Craft!
Right now my preschooler is into learning letters and spelling his name. So today we took a few simple household items to make these really fun paint letters!
- Washable Paints
- Paint Brushes (could also finger paint!)
- Large white paper or canvas. I used white paper sized 18×12. You can get this in large packs at the Dollar Store
Take your large piece of white paper and make whatever letter you would like. I used electrical tape because it’s all that we had in the house, BUT it is very easy to bend and it comes off the paper without tearing it if you make a mistake!
Next, let your child PAINT, get messy and be creative! My son loves to blend colors and see what he can come up with. Make sure they paint the entire paper, tell them you don’t want to see any white left!
Now let it dry. It will probably take over night or at least 24 hours for it to dry entirely. You want to be sure that it’s all dry, or when you pull the tape off it will bleed into the white part where you have the tape. After it’s try, peel off the tape very gently. The best thing about using electrical tape is that it won’t tear the paper when you take it off! With your finished product, you can grab a frame at WalMart for around $3.97 and display your child’s art proudly!
