Paint pucks

by Lara

Do you remember these from elementary school?

I’m always looking for new crafts to do with Kiernan and when I saw these at Wallacks (I know you can also get them at Scholar’s Choice) a wave of nostalgia came over me from elementary school art class and I couldn’t help but pick them up. They cost about $13 for the starter pack and then you can get replacement pucks as well as other colours for when you want to mix things up.

They are awesome.  We use them all the time. The colours are vibrant, there’s no wasting, and best of all when this happens to your paint (and if you have a 3 year old too, the chances of this are quite high ;)….

… all you need it a little water to get the paint looking good again.

And the best part of all is the artwork you end up with at the end.

Lara is the mom to 3.5 year old Kiernan and 10 month old twins Quinn and Juliette. You can find her at her blog Gliding Through Motherhood.

  1. Totally awesome. With the warm weather, we can start to use the deck again, and maybe we should get some paint pucks for when Rhen comes for her overnights.

    Look at that art! Very impressive.

  3. Instead of recycling all the paintings your little guy is bound to create, those big papers/paintings make AWESOME wrapping paper. Presents look so cute wrapped up in a little person’s works of art!

    • Great idea Amy! I’m planning on having rotating artwork up on the walls in the playroom and saving what comes down for wrapping paper is a great idea!

  4. I love paint pucks. I bought a few individually and they are huge and way less expensive then buying a paint pallet.

  5. We have pucks like that and they really are awesome. I have had them for ages! Love them.
