Q-Tip Painting is one of my favorite kids’ activities! You can literally throw the q-tips away after each use instead of slaving in front of a sink washing each paintbrush one-by-one.
(I promise I am not always this lazy. I don’t have much time to waste these days since we put our house on the market last weekend! More like stab me with a q-tip! ha)
Not to mention that Q-Tip painting keeps kids entertained for a long span of time. (Don’t ask me to define a long span of time as my idea of a long time is probably much shorter than you would imagine. My daughter has a very short attention span!)

See how hard my daughter is concentrating on holding the q-tip? That is called fine motor skills in action. Take that pediatrician! 🙂
Simply bust out a few Q-Tips out of your bathroom drawers, squeeze some washable paint on a large piece of paper or paper plate and watch your child create a masterpiece!
Once your kid’s masterpiece dries consider creating a framing the Q-Tip Painting to display within your home.
If your child(ren) need more direction and are getting bored with freehand painting, consider printing Q-Tip printables for your child to work on. These FREE Disney Frozen Q-Tip Painting Printables are perfect for teaching your child how to write letters while also having fun with paint!
Reese enjoys any activity that makes a complete mess, but that is okay! I enjoy watching her explore her creative side no matter how much mess she makes. Plus, these types of activities improve fine motor skills which is all the rage, right?
