Learning numbers can be fun with this number stencils painting activity. You can use the same technique to paint numbers onto your craft projects.
Print out this Medium-sized Numbers - Set 1 on A4 or Letter size cardstock. You can also draw your own numbers on cardstock or construction paper.
Cut out the numbers.
Put masking tape at the back of each number. Stick the numbers onto a sheet of 9" x 12" construction paper or drawing paper. Leave a gap of at least 2 inches between the numbers.
Prepare different colors of tempera or poster paint. Add some water and mix well.
Paint around each number with outward strokes. You can use one or several colors on each number.
Using a roller brush is an easy and fun option for young kids.
After painting all the numbers, set the picture aside to dry.
Once the paint dries, remove the numbers to reveal the "exploding" number silhouettes you've created!
Celebrate the New Year with an exploding numbers poster or picture.
You can also paint these colorfully exploding numbers onto gift boxes or pencil holders.
For this box, I used acrylic paint to paint the numbers, then a coating of clear acrylic sealer to seal in the paint.
