Painted Light Switch Cover Activity for Kids

Customized Light Switch Painting


  1. Light switch plate
  2. Acrylic paint
  3. Small brushes


Replace your child's light-switch plate with a customized one that your child has created. Get all the materials ready. Using the small brushes, have your child paint on a design, picture, or her name. Wipe mistakes off with water, or wait until it dries and paint over the top of the dried paint. Let the plate dry completely before screwing it back on the wall.
