I have been seeing a lot of tape resist art on Pinterest and wanted to try it out with my little. Art projects that allow us to re-use items and use items that we already have at home is a huge win in my books!

What is Tape Resist Art?

Tape Resist art is a fun and easy art process for kids of all ages. It's done using blue painters tape, which is easy to peel up. Let's get creative today!

Materials



This activity is so simple and uses a lot of items that you probably have laying around your house. The great part about this activity is that the setup and cleanup is so simple and it is a lot of fun!

Here are some items that you will need:

Activity


We completed this activity outside on a nice day so I didn't have to worry about the paint getting on the floors and/or walls inside. I just laid the cardboard on the deck for my little one to paint. I told my little one we were going to make a spider web painting. We talked about vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines. Then I had her tell me which way I should put each piece of tape; vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. 


After our pieces of tape were placed I had her choice some different colors of paint that she wanted to use. We poured some of each color into the egg carton. As the activity progressed I started putting dots of paint all over the cardboard so she could paint. That seemed to work best.


When the cardboard was covered and she was ready to be finished painting, I placed the cardboard in our garage to dry over night. In the morning I had my little one help me peel up the pieces of tape. She was impressed with her finished product. 


This activity is so easy and will surely be a crowd pleaser. My little one had the best time painting. She said multiple times throughout the activity that she was having so much fun painting! 

I can't wait to hear about your tape resist art projects! Feel free to leave me a comment below on how it went and/or if you have any questions.

Happy Painting,

Jello Dig

Jello Dig Sensory Activity I have recently been looking for new ways to entertain my little one. I feel like she has been playing with the same toys for over 5 months. She seems to feel it too. I do try to rotate her toys so she has a variety to play with. But, I decided it was time to go on Pinterest to search for a few activities I could complete with Maci. I searched for activities that had little prep and possibly things that I already had at home. Each week I would like to complete a new activity. Not only is this fun for Maci, but for me too! Our first activity we tried was the Jello Dig. This is a great sensory activity for children 6 months to 5 years old. Here are some of the supplies you will need: throwaway aluminum tin (purchased ours from the dollar store), package of gelatin, a few of your child's favorite plastic toys (I used Maci's pacifier, four different shapes from her shape sorter, one of her spoons, and teething carrot), apron/bib, digging utensi
