Paint Bags

What to do:

  1. Spoon small amount of paint into resealable bag.
  2. Seal to close tightly (tape if desired).
  3. With fingers, press on bag to make designs and move paint around.

Supervise so that younger children don’t place the bag over
their head!


  • Try other colored mixtures instead of paint: pudding, ketchup, mustard, lotion, etc
  • Experiment with adding other bits of things in with the paint, such as confetti, pieces of lace, or tiny shreds of fabric. Use nothing sharp that might poke a hole in the bag.
  • Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Older children can squeeze to use as a painting tube.
