What kind of paint should kids use?
While they could use any kind of paint, you should opt for specific kids painting supplies instead. These paints are washable, kid-friendly and have super vibrant colours which kids love.
Does acrylic paint wash off?
Acrylic paint is great for kids because it's affordable, vibrant and fun to paint with. Because it's water soluble, you should be able to wash out any paint splatter from clothes fairly easily if you get to it before it dries. It's also fairly easy to get off of skin too.
However, if it lands on some surfaces or fabrics that you weren't expecting it to and it dries - you might have to use some special solutions like rubbing alcohol or a lot of scrubbing. Best to try and avoid that completely!
How do you teach a child to paint?
The best way is to just get them to start! Because there are so many different types of art that you can try, they're bound to have a go at something that catches their imagination. Once they've learnt how the basic techniques work, they can start experimenting with other craft paints. If you're creatively-inclined, they can watch and copy you - you'll be amazed at how quickly they learn and improve.
