Fun Activity for Preschoolers - Water painting!

So after a rough morning of potty training, Brody and Mommy needed to get outside and have a little fun.  Thanks to a pinterest post, Mommy had a great idea for some cool and not too messy fun...WATER PAINTING!  Instead of paint, you just need a cup of water, some concrete, and paint brushes.  Mommy is no artist, but she did have to draw a couple of pictures at Brody's request.

My little artist.  He loves to paint and comes home daily from school with paint all over him!

Brody wanted me to draw him a dog.  Um, I'm not sure I succeeded.  I am no artist!

And yes, he also requested a stop sign and then informed me it is an octagon.  That is his favorite shape.  We are still working on getting our colors down, but he knows his shapes!

I drew a picture of a stegosaurus for big brother who was absent. 

Then, Mommy had the brilliant idea to work on our letter writing and recognition.  She drew each letter, and Brody traced the letters with his brush.  I was amazed that he did so well!

  4. Fun idea. We could do that in the winter here, but not in the summer. Well, unless we wanted to end up being treated for 3rd degree burns. In the summer the only thing we can do with concrete is a fun science experiment known as, "how long does it take to fry an egg on the sidewalk?"
