painting with kitchen utensils

Pin It

as you might have been able to tell by yesterday's key painting activity, we are currently working on the letter Kk.  it seems like Bear responds better to activities where everyday items are used in unconventional ways (as many children do). so we went with an "old school" activity ((i.e. from my early 20s)).

i got all the paint supplies (minus brushes) out and put them on his table.  then i grabbed a bunch of kiTCheN uTEnsiLS and sat them on our paint tray.  his eyes started sparkling with that "what am i going to create?" glow. 

and then he went to town:

painting with pot lids

painting with cupcake liners
painting with silverware


Painting with a whisk




and the cool thing? everything got washed off in the dishwasher, which meant less clean-up for me! yay!

Ok, So I'm wondering where in the world you put all of the stuff you and little one make?? Do you just have that one wall that you showed a few months ago? How often do you change the artwork out?

This is a fantastic idea. I love the whisk. I bet a potato masher and a meat tenderizer would be cool too. If I had them.:)

Looks like fun, so clever it can all just be thrown in the dishwasher! Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness. Can't wait to see what you have to share with us next time!
