Home art projects can be a great way to keep children entertained on a budget during school breaks. You don’t have to spend very much money to get all the craft supplies you need to create some awesome items like paintings, illustrations, costumes, customized jewelry, purses, table decorations and more.
Painting is perhaps the easiest home art activity to organize, however, you have to be aware that you might have a lot of mess to clean up after all the pictures are completed. It can take longer than you think to clean paint brushes and color mixing pots. In order to make the cleanup process easier, it would be a good idea to opt for water-based paints. This is because oil based paints can be difficult to remove and if you accidentally spill them on any carpets, the professional cleaning bill could be costly.
In order to ensure kids have the most fun when painting it can be a good idea to buy the largest size paper, you can find. Painting a picture on a standard sheet of A4 white paper can be a bit unexciting, but if you give kids a sheet of A1 colored paper to create their designs on, they are sure to have a fun painting for hours. Children that don’t have any natural artistic talents might appreciate paint by numbers images, as then they will still be able to create great looking painting even if they lack creativity.
You can generally save a lot of money by shopping for your arts and craft supplies online. Internet-based retailers have fewer overheads than bricks-and-mortar stores, so they are often able to offer customers much more competitive prices. You can also save money by buying art supplies in bulk quantities to take advantage of wholesale pricing.
