1-Fork and other painting

Printing or painting without a brush can you guess what I used to make the different four seasons leaves?Looks like fun:)

I needed to did this!!! I’ve been holding off because I’ve been making them make crafts with lots of materials.So creative.We used plastic fork,q-tips,cokie cutters(shapes) ,sponge and cotton tips or different materials used you.

4-Process Art Apples

Process art with apples.
For this,I sliced two apples in half to be used with four paint colors.I used large corn holders to stick into the apples for her little hands to hold onto when stamping in the paint and on the canvas.I showed her how to stamp the apple first and then let her have at it.She stamped and slid the apples around,but didn’t finish until she got to mix up the paint with her hands too.

6-Hammer Painting

Homeschool hammering art activity with paints and cotton pads

This hammering activity was so fun.
I put dabs of washable paint on a large sheet of paper then covered them with cotton pads.My son had to hit them with a hammer to see what color was underneath.It only took doing one inside to decide that this was definitely and outdoor activity.Fun process art that’s also great for hand-eye coordination.

9-Firework Painting

Homeschool firework painting art activity


  • Toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls
  • Different paints
  • Yellow and purple papers

I just cut different length slits into the end of the paper towel rolls and fanned them out.Once these were dipped in paint,they created an amazing pattern on the paper.
This activity kept both girls entertained for well over half an hours as they explored the different colours,shapes,patterns and effects they could create.There was lots of sharing,turn taking and communication happening as well which was great to see:)

Love how our firework prints turned out.
