Getting my children to put things away when they are finished is often a struggle but sometimes it has its advantages. A tub and paintbrush were left on the driveway. After a few rainy days it inevitably filled with water. My 2-year-old picked up the brush, dipped it in the tub and proceeded to paint the garage.
On a sunny day she returned to the tub but couldn’t find her paintbrush. I brought a selection from the garage and as she discovered the different lines the brushes made. Painting on a dry driveway was a very different experience. I later found a paint roller – below are her remarks as she played.

Funny how not putting things away can lead to a new activity! That is so like my children. I bet the paint brushes and rollers were abandoned for you too. Still all in a good afternoon’s play and no paint to put away! Thanks you for sharing on Country Kids.
I love activities like this. As an adult, I can see the developmental and learning aspects but the children are simply having fun! That is what it is all about.
We’ve done quite a bit of water painting with brushes, but never rollers. Think we need to give it a go. Thanks for stopping by the Outdoor Play Party
