"Painting" with Water

Are your kids bored? Send them outside with a cup full of water and a paintbrush and ask them to paint a picture on the sidewalk or driveway.

If it's a hot day, paint in a shady spot so that the pictures won't dry up before they're finished.

Hand them a digital camera and let them photograph their masterpieces. Print the photos, and help them create a portfolio of their artwork in a photo album.


  1. What a great, non-messy, and inexpensive entertainment! Genius!

  2. I just send my little big man to the park but this adds a bit of extra fun.

  3. that is an awesome idea - so happy I found your blog :) full of great simple ideas which are the ones the kids love way more than complex electronic toys - love your work
