Here are two simple "painting" activities for your kiddos to do this summer.
The first is seriously too easy. Grab a bucket, cup, bowl, whatever of water and a paint brush.
No mess and the fun goes on.
Another simple way to let your kids paint the sidewalk is with sidewalk paint.
You may have seen this idea and not known how super uncomplicated it is. The link I originally used is gone now, but the mix is an easy 50-50 mix of water and corn starch and add whatever food coloring you like. Stir, stir.
Once again. hand over a paintbrush (like paint the house style, not water color variety) and let them go at it.
