A sunny day and no paint for the kids in the house?
Just take a big paint brush and water and let the kids paint on your sidewalk!
It was so exciting for my 3 years old granddaughter to see the spreading of the water on the stones and how quick the hearts and flowers disappear in the sun.
And she learned that the paintings stays longer when she painted in the shadow.
She painted on the wall, the door, her arms and legs, the leaves of the bushes - and me
And then she splattered all with the water. She had so much fun - and no stains on her clothes.
Ein sonniger Tag und keine Farbe für die Kids im Haus?
Einfach einen großen Pinsel und Wasser nehmen und die Kids auf dem Gehweg malen lassen!
Es war so spannend für meine 3 jährige Enkelin zu sehen, wie das Wasser sich auf den Steinen ausbreitet und wie schnell die Herzen und Blumen in der Sonne verschwinden.
Und sie hat gelernt, dass alles, was sie im Schatten gemalt hat, länger blieb.
Sie bemalte dann die Wand, die Tür, ihre Arme und Beine, die Blätter vom Gebüsch - und mich
Und dann hat sie alles mit Wasser bespritzt. Sie hatte sehr viel Spaß - und keine Flecken auf der Kleidung.

My kids used to do this when they were little, for literally hours!ReplyDelete
I thought I was just being a cheapskate but they did used to love it. I never thought about how much they were learning, maybe I was a better mum then I realised.
So eine wunderbare und enfache Idee! TollReplyDelete
What a perfect activity for a hot, summer day. Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!ReplyDelete
We love painting with water! We paint our chalkboard with water too!!ReplyDelete
This was a favourite summer activity for my kiddos when they were little. We also tried ice-chalk, but the water painting seemed to be much more fun.ReplyDelete
lol really nice. Cheap, always at hand, very creative!ReplyDelete
It's amazing how fun playing with simple things like water is! We used our foam alphabet letters to paint with water outside and the kids loved it. They could have played with it for hours :)ReplyDelete
