Paint and Peel!

Preschool Arts & crafts Activities: Paint and Peel!

What You Need:

  • Sheet of paper
  • Pencil
  • Scrap paper
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors
  • Tempera paint
  • Brush
  • Eraser

What You Do:

  1. Have your child practise writing their name as large as they can on a sheet of scrap paper before starting on the sheet of white paper.
  2. Once your child is feeling comfortable making large letters, they can do it on the sheet of white paper, filling the entire sheet of paper with the letters of their name along with leaving space between each letter.
  3. Now your child can use strips of tape to write out the letters of their name, over the penciled letters.
  4. With their favorite colors of tempera paint, they can paint all over their paper, creating a tie-dye look by mixing the colors!
  5. Once the paper has dried, they can slowly and carefully peel away the tape, revealing their words. Offer your child an eraser to remove any of the pencils marks.
