Cardboard Paintings

Looking for a cheap inexpensive activity for your little ones? Why not paint? Have no idea what to paint on, just grab an old box you have in the garage or an old shoe box and give it new life for a few moments.

We love to paint in this house. The only art work up on the walls actually are of Jackson’s paintings.  So today when he wanted to go outside I wanted to give him an activity to do other than digging up my flowers.

I brought out our Tempura Paints and did a few squirts into muffin cups.  I was able to pick up smaller paints and brushes in Target’s $1 isle yesterday. Took an old moving box out of the garage and onto the back patio. And I let him have some fun!



We tried a little bit of drip painting. He got bored with that fast since it didn’t fall off quick enough.



we have to paint rocks!!!


While singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” he started painting body parts =)


Yes you can paint my white flowers blue.




When we were all done, we turned the muffin cups inside out and smeared the remaining paint!


Our finished painting!

Have fun and enjoy!!
