Sugar Aunts: Painting with Pinwheels Art for Kids

Painting with Pinwheels Art for Kids

This painting with pinwheels art activity is one that we actually did last summer.  We never got around to sharing it, but it was such a fun creative art activity, that I wanted to be sure to show you all!  My kids still talk about painting with pinwheels, so we'll be doing this one again soon, especially now that the weather has warmed and we can get back outside for creating art with the kids!

Paint with Pinwheels for a creative art painting experience with kids!  This is a cute art project for a letter "P" preschool theme!

painting with pinwheels P letter theme

This is such a simple and fun outdoor painting activity for summer.  Or, if you're looking for a "letter P" theme for preschoolers, painting with pinwheels would be perfect!  (See what I did there?  Perfect?)  You can definitely take this painting activity indoors, with paper spread over the table surface.  The paint coated pinwheels make the paint spray, especially as kids start getting more into the activity and discover that blowing the pinwheels makes paint spray in super artistic ways!  

Pour a little washable paint into bowls. (Click here for our favorite paint for it's bright colors that don't fade as they dry.)  Show the kids how to dip the pin the pinwheels into the paint.  We used a giant roll of paper for big art.  Roll, blow, spin, and tap the pinwheels onto the paper with color mixing.  This is such a fun and creative painting activity!
