Curriculum: Painting

Painting. Sensory Activity 


Curriculum category: Art/Crafts 

Painting is a great sensory activity to do with toddlers and kids of all ages. It allows them to explore colors and senses by touching and mixing the paint.  This activity also allows them to express themselves, be creative, and just let loose!  Getting messy shows that you don’t have to be perfect and that sometimes life is messy 🙂  Have fun!


  • washable paint (age appropriate)
  • Empty egg carton if you don’t have a pallet
  • Paint brushes
  • bowl for water
  • big sheets of paper
  • drop cloth or something to cover ground
  • Something your child can wear you don’t mind getting messy!
  • A station ready for cleaning afterwards!
