1. Splatter Painting
Beginning from the fun one, you need to grab a white paper/sheet, watercolors, and a toothbrush. Well yes, you are not going to paint with any brush or hands. All you need to do is dip the brush in watercolors and gently rub down the bristles on the paper. Once you are done making a cool design you can keep your piece of art just like that or else, you can cut out pieces and make a collage out of it.
Note: This fun activity can be a little messy so, make sure you are using washable painting colors and wearing an apron to cover your clothes.
