For the next few weeks Allison of Learn Play Imagine and FSPDT are going to bring you a fun new series Spring Activities for Kids. Be sure to check back each Monday to see what we have been up to!
We love to paint and we love bird seed. So why not just for fun mix the 2 together to create fun and easy springtime sensory paints. Note: these paints are not intended for birds. Please throw away any left in the trash can. Do not put these paints outside for birds to get! Ok, now that I have stated that, let’s get back to our regularly scheduled activity sharing!
Rainbow Spring Sensory Paints
I made the paints while the kids were not home. They were quick and easy to put together but having it all ready to go for them to paint that afternoon was nice.
As you can see above the paint colors came out bright on the paper.
These paints are also scented! Fun colors, texture, and scent all in these Rainbow Spring Sensory Paints for the kids.
Once the kids got home I sat the paints, paper, and brushes out for them to paint. They got excited to try something different. And to find 2 of their favorite things together on the table, this was a good day.
They often move from painting paper to painting hands. lol. These paints also wash off well.

What we used:
Crayola Fingerpaints Bold and Secondary Colors, 8-Count
L.A. Looks Sport Xtreme Hold Gel, Hold Level 10+, 20-Ounce
Darice Plastic 12-Piece Paint Cups
I often use food coloring when making our DIY paints but this time I used our favorite finger paints to add the color. I love this because it made them washable paints. I just loved Learn Play Imagines Confetti Paints last year and added a little touch of that here in our paints. You must head over to see her Confetti Paint recipe if you have not already. It is amazing!
What I did:
I took the little paint containers and mixed hair gel and a little finger paints together. Then I sprinkled in some bird seed.
Now we had scented, colored, and textured sensory paint to use.
Be sure to stay posted to see what fun project we worked on with these paints too.
Now head over to Learn Play Imagine to see her Mud Paint Recipe post for today!! I just LOVE it.
