COLLABORATIVE PAINTING WALL
This project is inspired by the fab ART BAR BLOG who made the most amazing recycled painting wall. I love how her art students had full ownership over the whole project, working together to glue all the cardboard, mixing paint colours and painting the wall together.
- A large piece of thick cardboard
- Lots of items from your household recycling like egg cartons, cardboard tubes, corks and scraps of cardboard
- Hot glue gun or multi purpose craft glue
- Paints and brushes
We made this large painting wall for by boys 5th birthday party. I used some large cardboard packing boxes to make the base wall and lots of different egg cartons, toilet rolls and pieces of cardboard to decorate. We attached everything to the back wall using hot glue. If you don't have a hot glue gun, use multi purpose craft glue and leave your wall to dry overnight.
Mix a selection of paint colours and let your little ones get creative. We left our painting wall up for a few days and the kids kept coming back to add more layers of paint.
