Canvas Painting for children!


  • 1 Acrylic Paint Colours
  • 1 Paint Brush
  • 1 Canvas Board
  • 1 Smock
  • pencils


  1. This is such a fun and simple activity for kids to do and so much imagination. Cover up the table and ask the kids to draw a picture on the canvas. Anything they can imagine.
  2. Your options aren't just limited to paint, crayons, coloured pencils and chalks also work great on canvas. Hand the colours to the kids and let them go nuts.
  3. Waiting for the paint to dry is best done in the shade outdoors, then hang on the wall, and voila!


Great and simple artwork that’s looks great in the home and to keep forever.

About The Author

I completely adore my kids. I really like talking to all kinds of people, especially those with similar interests and hobbies. I love my shed cooking and making things from scratch.
