Kids love making messes, and I say, let it happen! Don’t panic, parents; I’m not talking about mud fights or permanent marker scribbles on the wall. There’s something so wonderfully fun about opening a fresh bottle of paint and turning your kiddos’ creativity loose on a new art project, and with our brand new collection of art project ideas, your little ones can turn mess into masterpiece.

While the fridge is a great place for your child’s artwork, it’s even better when their masterpiece can be hung up elsewhere in the house. With these painting projects for kids, your crafty kiddos can make their own DIY wall art to decorate their room.
