Glue Resist Art Project for Kids

You know how much children like to squeeze glue bottles?

Well, here’s a glue resist art project for kids that gives them the opportunity to squeeze out glue to their hearts content. And then to paint the whole thing once the glue has dried.

We did this with Halloween themes, just ’cause Halloween is around the corner, but you could do it with any image or theme, even completely abstract.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Squeeze the glue out onto the paper into any image or design desired.

Tip ::  If you have a toddler or someone who has difficulty squeezing the bottle, offer the mini size or cut a larger hole in the top of the bottle.

That’s all! Easy and fun!

See how the glue lines resist the watercolor paint?

Note :: The pumpkin image above is one that I made with the glue but Daphne begged to paint it so I let her.

If your kid is into glue guns and/or you don’t want to have to wait overnight for glue to dry, you can make your glue image with a glue gun instead of a squeeze bottle of white glue. The large poster-board size spiderweb above is one that I made with a hot glue gun (and Daphne painted).
