Mess Free Painting, Magical Activity Book for Parents and Kids!

My kids absolutely ADORE art projects but I can’t always handle the mess that comes with them. More often than not they ask for some sort of painting project. I found a happy medium that allows them to paint but appeases me with less mess!

That’s where the Magic Painting books from Usborne Books & more come in to play. I use these when my kids are craving art and I’m craving a moment of quiet. Kids can enjoy these without too much supervision while you get just a minute of peace to cook dinner, take a shower, move the laundry and sip that reheated coffee.

These books are fabulous because they are virtually mess-free! I get a tiny Tupperware container – like the size you would use to pack some condiments inside a lunchbox. I add just an inch or so of water because my kids are crazy, and I let them have at it.

The only mess might happen if they dump their water cup – which has totally happened before but isn’t detrimental. Each book also comes with a flap in the back so you can put that underneath the current project. Each page is also perforated so you can pull one page out at a time, that’s what I do for my kids!

These are simple to use and straightforward. A paintbrush comes with each book. Dip the brush into the water and paint over the black and white portions. The color will appear and it comes out lovely! 

Check out one of these in action!

My 3-year-old (with a little help from me) did this one from the Magical Creatures book. He didn’t want to finish it because he loved it as is. It’s currently on our refrigerator.

You can browse all magic painting books on my website. Be on the lookout around holidays as seasonal ones usually become available around Halloween and Christmas.

As long as they are in stock, there are a variety available including Cinderella and Rapunzel, woodland creatures, dinosaurs and many more!

You can break these up and throw a sheet in a goodie bag for a birthday party or have them at a little arts and crafts table. This also makes great gifts for classes! You can buy extra paintbrushes and pair a brush with a page! Perfect for a small gift for your child’s’ classroom!

For additional gifting ideas, activity book ideas and more, you can find my community on Facebook where you’ll also find free printables, fun at-home activities to keep those kids busy and so  more!
