Inside: There are so many awesome preschool painting activities that can be done in the classroom or at home. Here are 17 favorites to try!
While planning our painting activities for Christmas, I stumbled upon so many fun ideas!
With all the super crafty ideas out there, I was pleased to find a selection of painting ideas that allowed the preschoolers to put their own personalities into their work.
Just like my collection of handmade ornaments, I wanted to make sure that the children could put their own touches on their work. I also included some of our own ideas that we’ve loved for many years.
