Ziploc Bag Painting

ages 2-5


Ziploc bags, paints

Activity Detail

A fun way to teach colors and color mixing (red and white make pink, etc) with less mess. Take large storage bags and have your child pour a little paint, just one color, in the bag (if you have paint with squirt tops, that's even better!). Then, have them choose another color and have them guess what color it will make. Pastel paints work great because they blend nicely. The end product is a tie-dye 'painting' all contained in the Ziploc bag. For younger kids, be sure to have them name the colors as they pour them in the bag.

Great idea! I used duck tape around all four sides to make ours more durable and last a little longer.

It's really cool to use shaving cream in the baggies for them to squish the colors together with....let them choose red & yellow, red & blue, or yellow & blue of course, or even experiment with other colors....
