Children’s Process-Based Art Activities

What is Process Art?
Simply, art that is focused on the process and not the end result. It’s unique, creative, relaxing and open-ended!
Just put out the materials and let your child explore them and enjoy the experience. For the most part, all the supplies can be found in your home. You just might need to order some washable paint. Here are just a few ideas to get you started!
Use different size balloons and a variety of colors. Dab into paint, then onto paper!
You can use paper tubes and or different size paper cups.
Kitchen utensil painting
Put out different utensils, plates of paint, have fun!
Car track painting
Let your child be part of the process of choosing the vehicles. Then, let the road trip begin!
