Take a look at all our painting ideas for kids. We love ice painting, painting on foil and using homemade bath paints. For 35 more fun painting techniques take a look at our painting challenge.
I couldn't wait to try squirt gun painting with Harry after seeing how much fun 'Fireflies and Mud Pies' had with it. If you are looking to extend this activity check out their squirt gun tie dye t-shirts, they look soooo much fun!
You will need:
- Poster paint (watered down)
- Water pistols (one for each colour)
- A large canvas or paper
Water Pistol Painting
To prepare the water pistols water down your paint (50% paint 50% water) and pour it into the water pistols.
Once your water pistols are ready take them outside, prop up a large canvas and get squirting!
We chose just to use red and blue paint but more colours would be fun too!
Harry LOVED creating his unique piece of artwork and it looks great hanging up in the playroom.
This outdoor art activity is part of the A-Z outdoor activities hosted by Crafty Kids At Home. We took A for art. Click on the link above to see what other bloggers came up with for the rest of the alphabet.
