Get creative outside together with this easy way to paint with water!


1. Find a surface outside that you can paint on. It can be a sidewalk, patio, driveway or anything similar.

2. Dip your paint brush in the water and draw on the surface! Your drawing will appear on the surface and disappear as it starts to dry.

3. Have fun painting! Continue painting and trying new drawings together!
