The Color of Water
Water Coloring takes on a whole new meaning in this simple (and CHEAP) (...oh, and UNmessy!!) summertime activity in which kids paint with --what else?-- plain old water.
Today I gave the kids a large bowl of water and several fat paintbrushes. You'd be surprised how long kids (even big kids) on a hot, sunny day will paint with water. They are fascinated by the way it evaporates.
My kids and their cousin started off painting the patio wall, but it wasn't long before they moved on to other surfaces and then eventually dumped the bowl of water on the wall. No problem! Just refill that bowl and get back to Water Coloring!
