Cool down with color
It’s hot outside, so what do you need? Ice! Grab an ice cube tray, fill it with a mixture of half water, half watercolor paint, pop it in the freezer and leave it to freeze. Don’t get it confused with your frozen juice, though!When it’s done, put paper down in the garden and let your kids draw their favorite shapes with the ice paint. Watch the colors mix as the ice melts.
Safe Spray Painting
Get yourself some washable safe paint and a squirty bottle.Add 1 tablespoon of the paint, 1 cup of hot water, ½ a cup of cornstarch and a squirt of dishwashing liquid into the bottle, shake it up well and hand it over.Now your kids can squirt paint all over themselves and the garden. Don’t worry about the mess, it’ll all wash off easily enough. When the kids are done, just drop their clothes in a regular wash with Tide and they’ll come out as if nothing has happened.
