kids' vacation scene painting

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. Paint a summer vacation scene like this painting by Polly B.! Start with a light pencil drawing to sketch out the scene and then bring it to life by painting with washable acrylics by Creatology™.
Step 1

First, lightly sketch your vacation scene onto a sheet of mixed media paper.
TIP: Need help coming up with a vacation scene? Imagine your ideal setting: maybe it’s the pool, the beach, the neighborhood park or a road trip.

Step 2

Now, it’s time to paint. Feel free to use paints straight out of the pouch and mix them to create new shades. Let the paint dry completely so it doesn't smear.
TIP: You can rinse and save plastic food or yogurt cups to reuse as paint mixing cups.

Step 3

Take your time and fill in the entire scene so it’s really full of colour! Let dry completely.

Step 4

Sign your masterpiece in the bottom right-hand corner.
