Simple Summer Activities: Water Painting

This just might be the simplest activity I've ever done with Sweet P. It was fun and required very little preparation! The only problem was the heat. We played for 10 minutes before she turned to me and said, "Go inside?" You said it sister. And in we went. But it was fun while it lasted and we'll definitely do a few 100 more times this summer!

Simple Summer Activity: Water Painting

What you need:
1 bucket of water
Various paint brushes
Sidewalk (or a random cinder block)

Fill up a bucket of water and let your kiddos go to town on your driveway or sidewalk. It's such a huge canvas! No clean up involved! Except of course emptying the extra water into your flower bed!

You can also draw with chalk and paint over it with water to watch it change colors!
If you look closely you can see the tiny snow pea that the pea bandit snatched off a pea plant before we played. She eats them like candy right off the plant! They are growing around the fence behind her.
