Super-fun, Easy, and Creative Q-Tip Picture Painting For Kids

March 24, 2017 9 Comments

The title should read Q-tip Picture Painting For Kids AND Certain Moms Who Wouldn’t Mind a Fun Little Afternoon Craft as Well. 😉  I’m no Da Vinci, but Q-tips I can handle. They are also mildly less messy than paint brushes… but that is debateable. 

Three Q-tip Paint Picture Ideas

1. Trees. We stole a little inspiration from our neighbor’s pretty, pink tree, and let the spring theme run away with us. We used a few shades of pink paint and went to town. This one was my favorite. I tried to do the flowy-thing, but it turned out more like my hair today…a little too flowy and sticking out on one side. 😉

2. Dandelions. It doesn’t get much easier than this: two lines and a few dots. (This was a great one for our four year old to practice creating circles.)

3. Umbrellas and Rain. I just drew an umbrella then taped a little paper overtop so they could have magic effect when we took it off and everything under the umbrella was dry.

My kids love umbrellas. It’s kind of funny because we live in one of the rainiest parts of the country, but we typically don’t use them. We have a couple, but the only time they come out is when the kids want to trapse around the house, sheltering their heads from the occasional, imaginary downpour in the living room.

Hope all of you are gearing up for a great weekend!

Do you have any big plans?
