There are many creative ideas one can do with paint, below are just a few to help you get started:
- Search for rocks together, paint them different colors and place them in your garden or flower beds.
- Paint on computer paper and hang them up in your child's room.
- When wrapping a gift for a loved one, use brown shipping paper and paint it with your child. Turn simple gift wrapping into a gift of its own.
- Have your child paint their hand and make hand print art.
- Turn it into a teaching moment and learn colors with your child.

The options are endless.
