Painting with children from 2 to 3 years is fun, but it's so messy!

Would you like to find solutions so that they too can flourish with this inspiring medium? Because painting is much more exciting than pencils!

Here is an ideal solution for preschoolers. Use freezer bags! By adding the paint to the bags, it's impossible to make a mess!

And the children will have clean hands, like new, even after the painting workshop. No need to wash their hands afterwards.

It's so brilliant that you will want to make an inventory of freezer bags as soon as they go on sale! Think about it, this tip is well worth it!

This painting activity will not soon be forgotten by the children!

You will need:

-Pumpkin printed on standard white paper


-On white cardboard

-Strong freezer bags

-Gouache or washable paint in red and yellow

-Condiment bottles


How to:

1) Start by adding red gouache or washable paint to a condiment bottle and do the same with the yellow paint.

2) Then print pumpkins from the Net, on standard white paper or white cardboard

3) Place the cartons, or the printed papers, in the freezer bags

4) Add a little yellow paint and some red paint to the freezer bags, and to the cardboard or white papers and close them tightly.

5) Now have the children gently squeeze the bags to spread the two colors of paint all over the paper or cardboard

6) Once the paint covers the whole pumpkin, take it out of the bag and let it air-dry completely before proceeding to the next step

7) Once the paint has completely dried, cut out the outline of the pumpkin with the scissors
