Kids will be Painting Like Bob Ross in No Time with the "Painting with Bob Ross for Kids" Step-by-Step Paint Along Book (Review)

Have you ever sat down and watched a Bob Ross paint along video and tried your hand at painting tiny, happy trees or snow covered mountainsides?  If you grew up in the 80's, watching Bob Ross was up there with Saturday morning cartoons and watching Bob Barker's The Price is Right when you were home sick.  We all thought we could be artists like Bob, and he made it look so easy.  His voice and reassurance along the painting journey really got kids and even adults excited about watercolor painting.  And, still to this day, his painting show is streamed online and now newer generations of kids are falling in love with Painting with Bob Ross -- I know this as my two girls love Bob Ross, and picked up water-based acrylic painting thanks to his show.

So, when I was looking for gifts for the holidays I wanted to make sure I restocked their water-based acrylic paints and supplies and was hoping to find a book or video that I could give them to advance their new found love of water-based acrylic painting.  My search online led me to the Quarto Books page and their "Painting with Bob Ross for Kids" book.  

Buy now from Amazon for only $14.89

They also have an adult version, but I really liked this one as it had a colorful cartoon version of Bob who filled the pages of the step by step, easy-to-follow along lessons.  From painting sunsets to snow covered mountains and even crashing ocean waves, kids will love this paint along book, as it is laid out with illustrations of each step of the painting, making it easy for even the most novice painters to follow along and create amazing masterpieces that even Bob Ross would be proud of. Remember what Bob Ross always said, “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.” 

If you have a child who loves Bob Ross or is artistic and loves to paint, this "Painting with Bob Ross for Kids" would make the perfect gift for them, along with some new paints and painting supplies, this upcoming holiday season.  You can learn more about this and other wonderful book ideas for kids, and even adults by visiting Quarto Books today -- Happy painting!
