Easy Smush Paint Trumpet Craft That Kids Will Love

smush paint trumpet craft for Black History Month, Black History Month Craft for Kids

This colorful smush paint trumpet craft is a fun art project that you can make with your kids to celebrate Black History Month. This art project was inspired by a few jazz musicians who made history playing a trumpet. Dolly Jones was the first trumpet player who recorded a jazz record. Louis Armstrong was an incredible trumpet player and beloved entertainer in the 20th century. I was also inspired by Miles Davis who was a trumpet player and bandleader as well as one of the most innovative, influential, and respected figures in the history of jazz. I hope your family have a great time making this smush paint trumpet craft inspired by amazing African American trumpet players. Scroll down to get started!

Directions

  1. First, add drops of paint randomly on white cardstock. Your child can make a pattern with the drops of paint or place them anywhere on the paper. Make sure you use at least 3 different colors of paint.
  2. Next, gently lay plastic wrap on top of the paint and press with your hands to spread out the paint. Use a paintbrush to gently smooth out any large globs of paint that remain.
  3. Carefully peel back the plastic wrap, and let your artwork dry for at least 3-4 hours, overnight or in the sun.
  4. While the paint is drying, download the free trumpet template then cut. If you have a Cricut, find your favorite trumpet image then cut on black cardstock.
  5. Finally, glue the trumpet in the middle of the painted cardstock.
