I am so glad the weather worked out because this is definitely an outside activity! (How smart of Meet the Dubiens to do this in a bathtub where the kids are confined to one space!). We ended up having about 9 friends over which meant that we definitely needed to take this activity outside so my house didn't get destroyed. haha!
I let the kids paint directly onto a plastic picnic table, which was covered immediately. By the end of the morning the kids had painted the slide, scooters, tricycles, toys, their hands, and some baking pans. And I will tell you that using some cheapo house painting brushes from the dollar store worked WAY better than the small kid water color type paint brushes.
I was nervous that all the toys would be stained from the food coloring but I hosed them off and they were perfectly clean. As far as I can tell, John's clothes came out of the wash clean...and his hands finally were back to normal color after a bath that night! :)
So, do you think they had fun?!
I link up to these parties!
