Toddler Art – Dough paint and Artist’s Trowels

I wondered what they would make of this and I liked the idea of giving them an authentic experience. Oil paint would have proved pricey but dough paint proved a super substitute.


Dough paint is just flour, water and poster paint. You can make it as thick as you like. We popped it down on some mirror card with some artists trowels and off they went!


They explored spreading and mark making using the tip and sides of the trowel.
Then they just got nice and messy!
