Tartan Painting


Scotland is, of course, famous for its tartans. Why not have a go at designing your own with this tartan painting idea? My children found this an interesting challenge and enjoyed the finished result. It might be a fun project for St Andrew's Day or Burns Night, or a Scotland topic.

Different size paint brushes


To create your very own tartan, simply use 3 or 4 colours and paint horizontal and vertical stripes in a grid pattern. Use different size paintbrushes so that you have different width stripes.
