60+ Painting Activities for Kids

Painting activities for kids range from the simplest painting with a brush or hands to more elaborate spin art, marble rolling, and shaving cream marbling. Paint is an art material that is easily adaptable to a wide variety of kids’ art activities.

The following kids painting ideas use tempera paint, finger paints, and acrylic paint. (If you’re looking for watercolor painting activities, I had to give them their own page: 50+ Watercolor Techniques and Ideas for Kids)

Enjoy!
