There’s nothing more fun than letting your preschooler get a little messy with some paint (don’t worry, it’s not that bad)! Crafts are not just about creating something beautiful to hang on the fridge, it is a necessary learning activity for these young growing minds.

What is Process Art?
It’s no secret that kids love art. Process art allows kids to explore materials, methods, and textures in an open-ended way. It gives them the safe space to express themselves and experience discovery. While your child works through this craft, ask him/her questions about what they think might happen before they complete each step. If they want to use a different color than what’s recommended, let it happen. It’s all about the process, not the product.
Getting Creative with this Arts and Crafts Project!
white, thick paper (cardstock works great)
red, orange, and yellow acrylic paint
a thick piece of cardboard
bubble wrap, cut into corn cob shapes
brown paper bag, cut into strips for husks
Step 1 Squirt lines of paint, red, orange, and yellow, along the edge of the paper and through the middle. Don’t worry about squeezing too much. The excess will get pushed off by the cardboard.
Step 2 Have your preschooler use the cardboard strip to spread the paint across the page. He/she may need your help with pushing down hard enough to spread the paint.
Step 3 While the paper dries, squeeze some yellow paint on the bubble wrap corn cobs. Your preschooler will paint each of the corn cobs yellow. Make sure they spread the paint so you can see the bubbles popping through.
Step 4 Have your child glue brown paper bag stripes to the base of the corn cobs once they’ve dried.
Step 5 Once everything is dried, have your child glue their painted corn cobs to their painted sunset.
