These newspaper paintings are super bright and easy to make. They are also a great way to recycle some old newspaper that you may have lying around your home.


You'll need:

  • A black marker
  • newspaper
  • early stART Low-Mess Washable Fluoro Paint Discs (you could also use Easy Wash Fluoro Paint) 
  • Painting Paper 
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors 



Step 1: Circle & Cut!

Using your black marker trace a circle shape onto your newspaper. Cut along the marker line to create your circle.

Step 2: Paint Your Circle

Paint your newspaper cut out with your fluoro paints. We painted ours in segments. Make them as bright as possible!

Step 3: Create a Collage

Turn your painted newspaper cut out into a beautiful piece of art. We turned our circles into hot air balloons and snails by adding detail (stripes for the hot air balloon and a spiral for the snail’s shell). For the hot air balloon, add a basket and some clouds and for the snail, cut out a body and antenna to complete the picture.
