Finger Paint Bags

An Activity for Preschoolers:

Enjoy finger painting without the mess!

Before You Begin:

For these simple paint bags, you'll need finger paint, a zip close bag and a tray or table area for children to work.

Put approximately 1 cup of finger paint inside a zip close bag and reinforce the bag with duct tape. Create enough paint bags for each student, or a bag for each color.

Activity Goals:

Reinforce STEM skills by using fun art materials.


This activity is great for reinforcing STEM concepts like shapes and numerals while providing a colorful and tactile experience.

Let's Get Started


Place the paint-filled bag on a tray or table and spread it flat.


Have children use the paint bag just like finger paint. Using their fingers, the child can create shapes, numerals, or other STEM content ideas.
