Process art activities provide opportunities for kids to imaging and create, with no expectation for a finished result or product.

Painting activities are especially engaging for open-ended art experiences. 

This activity using paint and glitter is suitable for all ages. While older kids might get more detailed with their pictures, younger children will have fun just spreading paint and sprinkling glitter.

Provide a variety of materials so children can choose paint and paper colors as well as different brush sizes.

Shake glitter directly from the bottle, or put some in a small dish for grasping with tongs (or between the thumb and finger) for a great fine motor activity.

Pink paper is the usual choice at our house. And we like to paint with brushes as well as finger paint!

Be sure to sprinkle the glitter onto the paint while it is still wet.

These masterpieces are ready for framing!

This open-ended art activity encourages kids to be creative with a few simple materials. It also provides an awesome sensory experience using different colors and textures.
