Our daughter loves to paint and asks to paint almost daily. I like to mix it up a bit and try different things. In honor of the upcoming Earth Day, I came up with some items from the bathroom that are no longer usable.
The mascara wand was not one we had used before and it was her favorite. I’m not sure if the reason is, she really liked it or the wand’s past existence was associated with make-up. Mascara is the one make-up item that I switch up often, so we should have new wands to recycle into paint brushes fairly often.
With the toilet roll we were able to talk about how the rolls made a circle shape. We have also used toilet paper rolls in Sunday School to make characters from the Old Testament. There are lots of ideas on Pinterest for using recycled toilet paper rolls. Check them out on my Toilet Paper Roll Pinterst board.
Our daughter enjoyed painting with the toothbrush as well. She kept pretending like she was putting it in her mouth to brush teeth. I might have to make some edible paint. For dental health month I did a toothbrush painting project with my son’s preschool class. The kids had fun cleaning (painting) a yellow tooth with a toothbrush and white paint.
The empty toothpaste tube was also a new painting item to us. I’m not sure she enjoyed this one as much. It was the last thing she tried, so she could have just been done.
Other items we have used from the bathroom to paint with are combs, old make-up brushes, and shower poufs.
