We've been having a blast this summer with messy play in the Play Pool! Last week I added tempura paint (washable, of course) for a new way to paint and mix colors. With the 4th of July just around the corner I thought it would be fun to use red, white and blue.
They stepped in gingerly at first. It always surprises me when they start slow, but of course before too long they were covered from head to toe.
JZ attempted some handstands, LOL. It reminded me of when we made our Body Paint Slip and Slide, only this was much more slippery!
One of their favorites was sliding in the paint. They kept requesting more paint, so they could smear it as they went down.
J-Bug requested cars and trucks to drive through the paint.
He kept asking for more until I brought almost a dozen. He loves making paint tracks with trucks.
JZ grabbed the hose to begin the clean up.
It became a car wash.
Or maybe a car bath.
We paint almost every single day. Be sure and check out other ways we've gotten creative!
