Move: Water Gun Art

Step 1: Fill water guns with a mixture of tempera paints and water. I didn't measure anything; just tried to not make it too watery.

Step 2: Cover (or undress) your kids. Or both!

Step 3: Find a spot that can get a little messy without a lot of stress...for us that meant outside!

Step 4: Lay out some ground rules. Best to not skip this step. I did...absentmindedly,  and ended up with a very Warhol-inspired right leg.



* For colors from every angle, rotate your canvas/sheet/paper throughout the project. It's much easier to move materials than little bodies yielding guns filled with paint!

* Lay project flat. If upright, the paint will run down the surface.

* Have a pack of wet wipes handy. :)

This is such a fun, fun idea. Maybe next 4th of July we can use red and blue and make patriotic pictures (outside on the lawn of course!) then a trip to the pool to wash the evidence off.

I bought some water guns at Michael's yesterday (cheap!) and we have some little friends coming over tonight. Hoping that the weather is nice enough to give this a go!!!
