This art project for kids is great, cave painting was an activity that ancient people realized all over the world. Being able to reproduce what they saw, was a huge step in human history.

This was the first activity that was not related with survival. Our ancestors didn’t “have to paint” in order to eat, or to defend themselves. We could never decipher why they spent so much time and effort to fill these caves with paintings, but we do know, that they must have enjoyed them, and marveled at them, as we do today.

Materials:

  • Kraft paper to cover the walls. It has to be a heavy paper in order to protect the walls.
  • Masking tape.
  • Charcoal.
  • Paint and brushes.
  • Spray bottle with watercolor.

It is important to cover the entire wall to avoid unpleasant surprises, you also need to protect the floor.
