My Painting Supply Picks

I always buy a value pack of canvases so there are plenty to use! For the younger kids, I let them use cardstock as they go through a lot. But the adults and older kids love using a canvas to really make us feel like real artists!

These are the acrylic paints we use (Amazon pick below). They come in a value pack, so you get the most bang for your buck. And as we are not professional artists, it’s nice to have a lot of colors ready-to-go when our blending skills aren’t on par.

And, it’s nice to have a big pack of brushes with lots of sizes and shapes. Again, we are not professional artists, so an affordable pack works great for us 🙂

More Valentine’s Family Activities

There’s plenty more Valentine’s Day fun to be had!

Grab a fresh bouquet of flowers and work on flower-arranging skills.

Or, pull off some petals and make a piece of petal art with them (or grab some artificial petals for long-lasting art).

Create a window display of hearts using colored papers!
