Painting with Tape

OK so for part two of our Father’s Day present I decided an oldy but goody was the way to go!  Painting with tape will amaze your kids and looks really neat too!  As usual, a very simple activity.  All you need is

Paper

Paint (you can use tempera, finger or water-color, this was with water-color)

Paint brushes

Painters Tape

Old plastic table-cloth

On your piece of paper spell out with the painters tape whatever you would like to stand out on the paper, we obviously chose dad since it’s Father’s Day, but my daughter also has one that says, Love.  Now set them up on the plastic table-cloth to protect their work surface and that’s all.  Set your little ones to work painting the paper (encourage them to paint the whole paper).  Allow the paper to dry and when it is let them carefully peel away the tape.  This totally amazed my two to see the tape had left the letters behind.  Hope you have fun and enjoy your Father’s Day!
