Wood Painting

We love doing this because the finished items are small and beautiful, we’re running out of display space for our masterpieces on paper but can always find space for little wooden shapes which have play value too.

You will need:

  • Newspaper
  • Paint palette (a plate will do)
  • Brushes
  • Wooden blanks
  • Paints

Mum Tip – To avoid the inevitable toddler brown splodges only provide colours from the same section of the colour wheel:

Red, yellow and orange

Yellow, blue and green

Blue, red and purple

If you mix opposite colours then you will get brown (red/green, blue/orange, yellow/purple)

Our flower paint pallet is from home bargains and the wooden rabbits are from HobbyCraft
