Splatter painting is a fun activity to do with the kids to get them outside and creative. There is no right or wrong way to do splatter painting, which makes it the perfect activity for kids of all ages.
There are many different technique and ways to do splatter painting. I have never met a child that did not like this activity because they could truly just make a mess- and it was okay! Adults can even join in on the fun and make their own artwork. Who knows? You may just have the next piece to hang on the wall and frame to show off.
Splatter painting does not take a lot of supplies or even a special place to be able to do it. I am going to list below what you need, and then you just find the perfect outdoor space. On beautiful days, this is the perfect art project to keep little hands busy.
A tip that I have for you is the more water-y the paints are the easier they will be to splatter on to the canvas and through the blasters. Let the kids go wild. Using their imagination and their energy that they need to burn off will make for the best of artwork. They will be so proud of what they have created and the fact that it is all their creation!
- Finger paints or Poster Paints
- Water Blasters
- Small Bowls
1. Add the fingerpaints or poster paints to small bowls. Add a
tablespoon of water at a time until the paint is thin enough to suck up with the water blasters. (This activity is very messy, please do it outside in an area that you can hose down.)
2. Place the canvas against something sturdy.
3. Invite your little ones to suck up paint colors with the water
blasters and shoot the paint onto the canvas.
4. When they are finished, gently place the canvas flat in the
sun to dry.
There is nothing more fun than seeing the final creations from splatter painting. If you are going to be doing art with your kids now that the weather is warmer, this is the perfect activity for you!
