It’s Thursday so that means another Funner in the Summer post. Today Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous sharing an easy, free activity that your kids can do.  Craftaholics Anonymous is full of tutorials, awesome ideas (craft swap anyone?), and all things craft.  Thanks for stepping in today Linda!

Hi there! I’m Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous. I’m excited to be here to show you a fun AND free summer activity to do with your preschoolers and toddlers this summer. Its perfect for warm weather fun and a breeze to clean up!

Painting with Water

Paint your driveway with water! {have you done this before?} I grabbed some foam brushes from my craft room, plastic cups, water, and my favorite boys and they had a ball making all kinds of wet creations. No need to worry about the “paint” running out with a hose near by!

As you can see, the water gets dirty quickly. But have no fear, the garden hose is near!

Make it funner and have different sizes of brushes and sponges for the kids to use.

and of course, after they got bored with painting, they started playing in the water….

I’m celebrating my 3rd blogiversary this week and am giving away a WorkBox made by The Original Scrapbox valued at $1695! {its a crafters dream come true!} so be sure to stop by Craftaholics Anonymous and join the fun!

Thanks for having me over to play today, Mique!


happy crafting,

    Mique, I work at a Montessori school and we do this but we call it ‘Magic Paint’. The kids love it! They ‘paint’ everything in our playground area including trees and fences!
