Warm weather always has my kiddos itching to be outside every day, all day long. I must say, I don't mind! I'm a lover of sunshine and being close to nature. Today we tried a super simple, easy, fun idea - we painted our yard with water!
- An outdoor space
- Your imagination!
Tips for maximizing your fun:
- Sample a variety of paintbrushes to explore how they each function in different ways.
- Teach letter or shape identification by painting them out on the pavement.
- Practice those pouring skills by providing a variety of water buckets, canisters, and measuring tools.
- Encourage creativity by asking what color they would paint various items if they had a choice.
When it comes to playing outside, don't overthink it; sometimes the simple activities bring the most joy!
