String Painting

There is one thing Oliver loves to do more than anything, and that is paint. He would paint daily if I let him. We do it a few times a month only because it's kind of messy.

This is a fun and different way to let your kids paint. We've painted with sticks, forks, match car wheels this time we're painting with string.

It's super easy.

You will need
String - I used fishing line and yarn
Plate or something to keep the paint on

Put some paint on a paper plate. Lay your string in the paint to cover it completely. Put your string on your paper and pull. Keep reapplying the paint onto the string and pulling it over your paper until you like how it looks.

Super simple!! Have a great weekend - Tomorrow is my beautiful sister in laws baby shower, next week I'll be sharing!!


  1. Such a cute idea! We do a lot of finger painting in our neck of the woods too :)

  2. I've never thought of fishing line- husband has that in spades :) We use sponges and the new Crayola Paint Markers a lot. What a masterpiece!
