I have had the wonderful opportunity to co-teach a preschool class at co-op this fall– Let's Make a Mess! (a process art class). In preparing for this class, the co-teacher and I have been gathering all these fun tools to use as paintbrushes!
Last week we had our first "free paint" and the kids used all kinds of things for painting.
Here is a list of what was available for the kids to paint with at co-op:
- fish net
- sink scrubber
- Roylco Paint Scrapers
- packing peanuts
- rolling pins
- bubble wrap
- tissue paper wads
- paint explorers rollers
- fishing lures
- empty toilet paper tubes (cut)
- toy cars and trucks
- plastic lids
- funky brushes
- popsicle sticks
- plastic forks and spoons
- bottle caps
- pieces of yarn
- cookie cutters
I let Simon continue having fun at home with these fancy brushes!

But cars were definitely his favorite! (see below)
If you'd like some ideas for process art for your kids, you can try the book we're using as our manual for this class– The Big Messy Art Book by MaryAnn Kohl.
