15+ Painting Ideas for Kids and Mom’s Library #93

I used to paint for hours when I was a child.  Watercolor was my favorite and I got pretty good!  It is a great way to release stress, promote concentration, and develop planning skills.  That’s why I’m featuring 10 unique painting activities to try with your children.  Make sure you get out the camera because you’ll want to save everyone of their creations.
