My kids love messy activities but sometimes it’s just a little too much to handle indoors.
We decided to do some outdoor painting.
A small amount of paint, a squirt of washing up liquid and a few drops of water were mixed in our pallet.
I showed my 4-year-old how to blow bubbles with a straw. We talked about the difference between blowing and sucking.
What will happen if you suck the straw?
I’ll drink the paint. Yuck!
It’s like the wind, the wind blows but it doesn’t suck.
We placed the paper on top to make bubble patterns.
Next she made a bubbly hand print.
When the paint overflowed onto the deck she discovered that you could do something else with the straw.
Blowing the paint on the paper with the straw made a whole new type of painting.

Looks great fun and really open-ended too. Makes me feel like ditching my computer and deadlines in favour of some paint fun!
What a fun and creative activity, one which doesn’t break the bank either. So much better for being outside where the mess can easily be cleaned up! Thanks for coming over and sharing with Country Kids.
