Painting Playdate on Wooden Puzzles

The great thing about painting is you can use so many different types of media. Look around your house and yards and there is most likely something old that can use a touch up or an item that you are going to throw away that the kids might be able to create their own little master piece out of.  Tiffany received two wood puzzles from her Grandpa the other day.  The first thought that came to her head was her best friend Tessa would love them, the puzzles are in the shape of Bunnies and Tessa loves bunnies. I immediately thought the puzzles would be fun for the girls to paint on a playdate. So the next play date we had with Tessa, Tiffany asked to paint the bunnies. The playdate quickly turned into a 30 minute painting secession.

What you will need is:

  • Wooden cut out puzzle or something to paint on.
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Baby wipes…I highly recommend for quick clean up with the Kiddos

I didn’t have a chance to get a picture of the bunnies before the girls started painting, they started so quickly, but here is one of Tiffany painting one piece to her bunny and a few unpainted pieces.

Here are a few pictures of the girls in action.  I didn’t have bunnies for the younger sisters, but they were very happy to paint on paper.

Tiffany and Tessa couldn’t be happier with the way the painted bunnies turned out! So let me introduce you to Bella and Clover bunny.

Just remember, before you throw away that item that you aren’t really sure you want to get rid of ask yourself, will this make a fun painting project for your child or children.
