For this week’s Water Wednesday, I needed an activity that was quick and easy. My original plan was to play in our new water table (affiliate link), but it was raining this afternoon. (I did wonder if getting soaked taking groceries to our car could count as our water activity today… Buddy certainly enjoyed it.) Then I remembered this activity, which we’ve done before.
I put some water in a small cup and used it to wet the end of a paint brush. I demonstrated to Buddy how to use the paint brush to draw on the construction paper. He loved making marks on the paper and feeling the wet paint brush bristles. When the brush dried out, I would rewet it for him. After seeing me do this a few times, Buddy tried to do it himself. (He didn’t quite get the hang of this, but it was cute to see him try.)
This was the perfect quick, fun activity for today. Buddy had a lot of fun, and I didn’t need to take any time to set up or clean up the activity. Painting with water is a go-to staple for summer fun!
