Paint in Ziplock: The activity you have to see to believe...

Hello my friends!

Today’s activity is a little out of the box and hopefully stays in the bag.

It is something I’ve seen on several blogs and Pinterest boards and I wasn’t too sure of but thought I’d give it a shot! These are creative times.

Here is everything you need to know about the Paint in Ziplock activity!




You’ll need:

  1. Something gooey, fun, and ideally colorful!

  2. A ziplock or two!

  3. Tape

  4. A window or play surface







It’s pretty self explanatory!

Just squirt some of whatever you decide on into a bag, tape it up, and let them at it.









I didn’t have any paint to put in my bags so I tried both shaving cream and dish soap in my bags! Both worked great but I prefer the dish soap since I can still use it for dishes after playtime is over!


For as simple as this activity is, I can see how it could keep your child really engaged! It kept me entertained for quite a while.










If you have spare tape it might be worth it to wrap it around the entire bag to prevent leaking or the bag going missing ;)


I was totally a skeptic but the results are in: this activity actually is fun and totally is worth a try.


Let us know how your tots like this activity!

Keep it fresh,

Miss Sophie
