Popsicle Paints

Here is a fun twist on paints. Perfect for hot summer days! Use popsicle molds to freeze colored water. I used three drops of food coloring for each "popsicle." Make sure to have real popsicles on hand for your little ones when you do this activity. You don't want them to be disappointed since these popsicles are not meant to be eaten.

Messy Play Date

This is a great summer activity. We had a messy play date! Ours consisted of the following stations:

Colored water mixing station:
Use recycled plastic jars and containers for mixing. I used recycled honey bears filled with water and food coloring. Kids were able to mix the colors to make new ones. It was fun!
 Water Table: 
 Cornstarch Paint Finger Painting:
Line the fence with art paper. Mix several bowl of corstarch, water, and food coloring. 
 Shaving Cream Slip n Slide:
Three cans of cheap shaving cream and a slip and slide did the trick. 

We also had a bubble machine and a fun sprinkler going. 

Perfect for when the weather is warm!
