Here are 6 fun kids painting techniques because, let’s face it, most kids love to paint. My girls adore painting but I have to admit it we don’t paint often as there is so much mess and tidy up time for the total amount of painting time. When we have a project in mind our painting sessions last much longer and we all seem to enjoy them so much more! These 6 fun kids painting techniques are fun on their own but would also make amazing card bases or look great turned into wrapping paper. No matter what you create with these painting techniques it will be a fun time for both adults and kids!

2. Potato Stamps
Using a cookie cutter makes it easy to cut a variety of shapes or it is also possibly to cut shapes with a knife if you don’t have any cookie cutters. We made Valentine’s cards the other day from heart potato stamps.
