Getting messy is part of being creative. That's why we partnered with OxiClean™ for this post.
This is a fun yet simple way to get creative with your child and encourage budding math skills. Masking tape turns into long lines, angles, corners, and a variety of shapes to be painted in with favorite colors. It's a great way to brighten up a dreary rainy day!
What You'll Need:
- Masking tape
- Acrylic paint
- Scrap paper
- Foam brush
- Offer your child lengths of tape, and encourage her to arrange them in an interesting way. Let her drive the design, but if things are looking like a jumbled mess, suggest using the entire canvas for the creation.
- Cover the work area to protect your space and select three colors of paint together with your child to use for the painting. Squeeze a small amount on a scrap of paper, offer your child a foam brush, and cover the canvas with color.
- Once dry, help your child remove the tape and reveal the painting. Find a spot to hang so everyone can enjoy the creation.
