Tape-Resist Winter Painting for Toddlers


Start by cutting up pieces of painter’s tape and using them to create snowflakes of various sizes. You don’t have to cut perfect little strips — in fact the different sizes will create a nice contrast in the painting.

We added a wintery tree along with the snowflakes for a more realistic scene.

Once ready, grab blue and white washable paints. We used various shades of blue and mixed with white for a nice overall color.

Let your kids go at it anyway they like. Younger kids and toddlers may want to use their hands to paint and older children and preschoolers may like to use various types of paint brushes.

Let the paint dry overnight and carefully remove the tape to reveal a glorious winter scene to add to your kid’s art collection!Winter Art for Toddlers
