Making your own paint brushes is an inexpensive, fun way to add variety to your art area. All you need are items from around your home, items found in nature or from the dollar store. Using a variety of materials for the brush part of the paint brush allows children the opportunity to experience various textures, designs and looks with their painting.

To get started, you’ll need to:
a variety of sticks, dowels, tape, scissors
Possible items for the “brush” part of your paint brushes:
elastic bands
pipe cleaners
feathers
grass
pine needles
yarn
fabric
felt
bubble wrap
leaves
twine
sponges
twigs
foil scrunched up
foam
(the possibilities are endless!)
