Painting is so much fun! Here’s a painting activity that one of our Medicine Hat providers did with her day home children.
Love it! Thanks for sharing!
One of our Medicine Hat providers sent in this awesome idea: Swing Painting!
What a simple, fun way to use your play equipment in a new way and incorporate some physical literacy at the same time!
One of our Medicine Hat providers had this great idea for painting with a sensory component. She says, “Wrapped paper with saran wrap after putting paint down. Kids moving paint with fingers on top of saran. They really enjoying it and they are staying clean”.
Awesome! Thanks for sharing!
One of our Medicine Hat providers made this with her day home children. She says to mix salt, flour and food colouring, then paint on a firm piece of cardboard and microwave for 30 seconds to see it grow!

So adorable! Thanks for sharing!
A Medicine Hat provider sent in this photo, saying, “put shaving cream on a cookie sheet and paint let them make designs using a toothpick or brush or qtip. them press paperover top and make a print”.
Looks like a fun mess – my favourite kind of craft!
A Medicine Hat provider sent in this photo of a game she created for the children. The children had to match the letters, shapes and colours from a pile to spell out their name. The kids loved it!
A Medicine Hat provider also sent in this photo of these adorable rocks, collected and decorated by the day home kids:
Great programming! Please keep sending in your awesome activities – email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of our Medicine Hat providers made paint with the children, saying: “It’s 1 cup flour 1 cup salt, 1 cup water. We halved the recipe, and added probably closer to the full cup of water because it seemed really thick”.
Check out their awesome paintings!
