Kitchen Tool Painting
Have you ever painted using your common kitchen tools? If you haven’t, you are in for a fun treat and if you have then you know how fun and easy it can be. For this activity I grabbed a few circle shaped kitchen tools such as a potato masher and measuring cup. You can also use the bottoms of muffin tins, plastic cups or bowls.

Earth Day Painting
Pour your washable paints into two bowls. Grab your brush and start painting the bottom of your circle kitchen tools with both the green and blue paint.
Then turn it over and stamp it on the white paper. I covered my entire table with white paper to allow my kids the ability to stamp all over.
