Entertainment and mindfulness for children at home

It doesn't matter what age your kids are, they will all gain valuable skills from painting pottery at home. An opportunity for some quality time together, good for their wellbeing or just a chance to keep the kids occupied. And the reason why it's such a good learning opportunity for all? It's fun to do!

We've created a number of packages to make it even easier. You can tick that one off the list. Phew.

Learning Benefits of Pottery Painting

Younger Children
Painting improves hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. They develop an understanding of the feel and way in which to handle paints as well as a chance to explore colour. It starts them on a journey of creativity - planning and designing their pottery independently.

Older Children
Provides a creative outlet for self-expression and exploration. A chance to develop new skills as they learn and practice ever more complex painting techniques. They plan and design before starting to create their vision on pottery. It can also help with developing greater self-confidence in their own abilities and development, as well as improve concentration.

Guide by Age

Younger Children
Start with lighter colours and focus on one part of the pottery e.g. the head
Make sure to mix in a good amount of water with the paint, only a small amount of paint is needed
Paint two coats of paint, it dries very quickly!
Use darker colours for details and patterns e.g. fingerprints, dots with the end of a brush, stripes or sponging.

Older Children 
Try planning the design out first on a piece of paper
Perhaps use different colours for different parts of the pottery e.g. one colour for the head, another for the body and tail
There are other techniques they can use such as dot hearts or painting a specific picture.
