Box Art

Idea from 365 Days of Baby Love, by Sheila Ellison and Susan Ferdinandi.

  • Any size box
  • Liquid tempura paint
  • Paintbrush or small sponge paint roller
  • Newspapers or drop cloth
  • Put drop cloth or newspaper on the floor to make clean-up easier. Make sure to dress accordingly!
  • Put paint in sturdy plastic container or tray and paintbrush nearby.
  • See what baby does with the brush before you put it in the paint.
  • Help child (if you want or need to) paint the box.
Great for imagination! Box can become a mailbox, a cave, house, castle, boat, hat, whatever child wants it to be.
