Making your own Christmas paintbrushes is a wonderful painting – sensory – art idea for kids under the age of about 9 years.

Older children will use the different brushes to create patterns – the result being a picture of a garden or of ‘something.’

Younger children will just paint! And that is perfect! It is a wonderful process art idea that focuses more on the process and enjoyment of painting than any end result!

We have done this before during the summertime after a walk to gather everything we needed! You can read about that here! This post also includes a short video of the children painting with the brushes! You can see them in action.

Supplies need to make your own Christmas paintbrushes

  • Wooden or plastic pegs/clothing pins
  • Christmas themed items to use as the brushes. We used spices, dried oranges, a Christmas bauble, tinsel, ribbon, and a fir tree! Let the kids walk around and find Christmas items – that is an activity in itself!
  • To paint you can use any paint you prefer! With younger children and process art something washable is always a good idea!
  • Paper or cardboard to paint on! The bigger the better!
