We love painting around here because we can spend hours getting creative and usually a bit messy (thank goodness for painting smocks). Lately we have shared some Painting Activities and I am excited to share a ton more with you today! The painting techniques in today’s post include painting tools such as food, bubbles, cardboard, ice, and more… and if that wasn’t enough we have painting methods that use swinging pendulums, gears, magnets, and even more crazy fun ways to paint!

This post was inspired by last week’s Love to Learn Linky. In case you missed it, some recent posts for our weekly linky party have been 5 Fun Ways to Count with Preschoolers, Spring Activities for Toddlers, Fun & Easy Fine Motor Skills, and Dinosaur Crafts & Activities.
