Children are naturally creative and painting is perfect for developing artistic skills, motor skills and learning about colors.
Kids can start with finger painting. When they get a little older, they can graduate into painting with a paintbrush.
Tempera paint is just the thing for either brushwork or fingers.
Hands, fingers, faces and floors clean up easily with water, as it is water-soluble.
Add a bit of dishwashing soap to the paint. This little tip helps with cleanup and pre-treats paint-riddled clothes for later washing.
