If you’d like your kids to paint around the house, but don’t like cleaning, this great tip will be a game-changer.
I have a no-mess solution for kids who make the craziest abstract art. The kids will be so happy with the creative mess, and you will be so happy because the creative mess was contained in a bag. Watch the video above and you’ll see what I mean.

What do you need:
- Painter’s tape (masking tape will do)
- Acrylic paints
- Resealable plastic bag
Tie painter’s tape to a canvas, shaped like a letter of the alphabet.
Squeeze paint drops onto the canvas (the more paint you use, the more coverage you will get).
Place the canvas in a resealable plastic bag. Close the bag.
Give the sealed canvas to your little one. Watch them smash and spread the paint around the canvas using their hands.
Take the canvas out of the bag and let it dry. Remove the painter’s tape. Next, present the dry artwork to your little artist, who may be amazed at what he sees or just throw the canvas over his shoulder.
