Painting with anything and everything

We felt like painting so we got creative.  We walked around the house and outside searching for things we could "paint" with.  

So here is the set up:
long paper rolled out
paint on a tray
squishy ball
guitar pick

First up was the squishy ball (her favorite).

Next a golf ball and I loved the dotted effect it gave.  

She loves getting messy!

Next, was painting with a leaf and she thought this was hard but after I showed her that less paint was better she liked it.  

Oh, the fun you can have with a straw.  She struggled blowing hard enough but she thought it was so funny cause she got paint all over her lips.  

Laughing because I told her she had blue lips. 

 Getting ready to help clean up the mess. 

Too late she is the mess!  She was due for a bath anyways and it was washable paint so it all came off in the wash. 

I saved the paper again and I think I am going to wrap her birthday present in it!  :)

“Mommy freebies, coupons and Advice on using coupons”
We did this in the spring with leaves, dandelions, rocks, etc. I don't know if you guys have sweet gum trees up there, with those little spiky balls? But, if you get an old oatmeal container and tape a piece of paper on the inside, throw a couple of those spiky balls and a couple drops of paint in--then shake it, it makes really cool stationery-type paper. Jaycee loves getting messy too. We painted yesterday and she had the paint all on the bottom of her feet and up her legs. I was having a hard time with it, but it came right off in the sprinkler. Your daughter looks like she was having a great time!
ah, the sheer joy of getting messy and getting to use everything in sight to paint! :) FUN!

It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
