Painting the House

You Will Need:

Old paint brush, bucket of water

Directions:

Ask your child to use the paint brush and water to “paint” the house, fence, or sidewalk. The water may change the color of the surface they’re painting, which will give them results.

Tip:

This is a great activity for a hot day – as the water dries, you and your child can watch the “paint” evaporate. Talk with your child as you paint – say things like, “Where did the paint go?”; “Try it in the shade and see if it disappears as quickly.” ; “What is different about the shady area?”; “Feel the brick, is it hot or cold?”
