Thomas gave these paintings to his Dad for his birthday and I have to say, they make me smile every time I look at them. Canvas painting is a really easy (and inexpensive) gift idea.
Not only are kids learning about colours, developing fine motor control and hand eye co-ordination while they are doing the activity but imagine the sense of pride they feel when they can see their artwork displayed on the wall. Thomas still gets a kick out of looking at his paintings. You can see how proud he is of himself.
What you’ll need:
- Decide on (and purchase) the size and number of canvas’ you would like to paint
- Paints – choose colours based on the decor in your room – the paints I used are acrylic artists paints which you can buy from craft shops. We used 3 colours.
