Glass Painting With Kids
If you have lost the count of the lockdown days, then we both are in the same boat. Because being at home and being productive simultaneously is an achievement in itself, isn’t it? That’s why my series about fun activities to do with kids during the quarantine period will surely help you to make the best out of quarantine time. Don’t just read the blog, I encourage all my readers to try out these activities with your kids and let’s turn their day into a creative one.
So, in this series of fun activities to do with your kids during the Quarantine period, I am going to add a new alphabet that starts from G and i.e., Glass Painting with Kids. Trust me, when I say that glass and paints combine then they make a great piece of artwork. Now, you can help your kids to create something that they will really feel artistic about themselves.
Why Glass Painting With Kids?
Glass Painting isn’t really different from the other painting process but the idea to paint on the surface on the glass makes it a plus factor. And, it is always a good idea to try something different, something which your children haven’t tried out before.
Material Required for the Glass Painting With Kids
For Glass Painting with Kids, you need a glass jar (or glass crockery) with a clean surface, permanent markers (or duct tape) to mark the outline, glass paint, and brushes.
How to make “Glass Painting With Kids”
It might seem a very easy process to paint on a glass surface but it is also advisable to let your kids perform glass painting under adult supervision. Firstly, squeaky clean the glass surface and make sure it is free from oil and dust. Then let it dry as there should be no traces of any water droplets. Now use the marker to draw a random pattern of the glass jars. You can also use duct tape as it will make the process a little easier for your kids and give a more defined look.
After making the boundaries, fill the pattern with different glass paints and let it dry for 3-4 hours. You can also use it as a lantern by filling the bottom of the jar with sand and then placing a tea candle inside it.
From the Glass Painting Activity with Kids, here’re the few learnings that I have decoded:
- It’s a great and fun way to explore some different gift ideas with kids.
- It enhances their creative skills and encourages their artistic side to show up.
My Overall Experience
Angel never tried glass painting before and she was fascinated when the tea candle was reflecting different colors from the glass jar. Now, she has her own handmade glass painted jar and a lantern.
