Spray Painting!

Outside Art!

Small spray bottles are a great water toy, I picked these up for 99 cents each and they are perfect. For days we’ve been having a heat wave, and have been playing with these in between running through the sprinkler and blowing bubbles. Today we added some paint and had a blast.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some craft paper, some small spray bottles, liquid washable paint and masking tape.
  2. Pour some paint into the spray bottles , add water and shake. You will want to use dark colors, because the water dilutes it .
  3. Tape your paper to your fence.
  4. Start spraying! Your child will have fun but is also giving their pincer grasp a great workout. We had fun spraying it up close , and far away. Older kids can try to make a picture or have fun watching the drips like we did.

    A covered in paint and glitter one.. seriously!

    It's a Canon Powershot, it's 3 years old they don't make the exact model anymore. I need a new one but I'm waiting for Santa to bring me one !

    Sooooo perfect! Soooo much fun! I really love this idea! I hope Santa will come and deliver a camera in July for you!!! As many photos as you take I'm surprised your three year old camera is still clicking— that was a good investment!

    Great idea. We have also used $1 store table cloths for our "canvas".

    Its so hot here already, we've been playing with ice cubes and ice blocks (edamame trays make nice big ice chunks) in the emtpied out sand table. Also fun for the tub or kiddie pool and even better with a drop of food coloring.
