Paintbrush-less Painting (ideas from the little man himself!)

Mini Thor LOOOOOOOVES art projects, and the last couple of days he’s been basically addicted to watercolor painting, filling up a couple canvas panels everyday. I love watching him create!

Recently, I had a pipette out adding a little water to each of the watercolor paints so that it would be easier for him to use them, when Mini Thor asked for more paper. I went and grab a canvas board out of the closet and when came back he was using the pipette to drip paint onto the masterpiece he was working on. Genius!!! Painting with a pipette, why didn’t I think of that?!?!

I’m telling you, this kid is going to grow up to be an artist!

What did he do next? He used the water cup as a painting tool!

We go through a lot of Dole fruit cups in this house, I wash the cups and we reuse them for water cups while painting, dipping cups for ketchup and other sauces at mealtimes, and for small snacks too!

He used the empty bowl (the water had spilled out a few minutes before) to make circle designs in his painting!

You can also paint around the edge and use the bowl like a stamp!

He has created some beautiful pieces!

I will be making one of our living room walls into a gallery wall to display his work! He is just thrilled about this idea and that makes my heart happy 🙂
