Squeeze Painting

What to do:

  1. Mix tempera, water and a little laundry detergent to make a creamy paint.
  2. Place inside catchup-like squeeze bottles.
  3. Let children squeeze the paint onto paper.


  • For variety, you can provide squeeze bottles with different colors of paint. You also might have children lay a second sheet over the top of their paper and press out a squiggly design.
