Two Ingredient Tuesday: Ziploc bag & Paint

I was inspired by this post on Let’s Explore to try this technique at home because it looks so entertaining, uses only two ingredients, and no mess! Frankly I had a lot of fun with it before I even gave it to my son.

Simply squirt paint into ziploc bags and make sure they’re sealed shut (you can add tape if you’re nervous about your kids opening them).

You can then draw anything you’d like and erase it by just mushing the paint around.

Adding two colors is an interesting way to experiment with color mixing. Older kids can practice writing their letters.

We also experimented with running various things over the paint – toy cars, a small pumpkin – even Baba got in on the action!

If you tape the bag to your table, kids can come by and play with it over and over!

  1. What a great idea and I love that it’s not messy. My son doesn’t like getting his hands dirty so this might actually get him interested and maybe eventually he will be brave enough to get actual paint on his hands. Thanks!
