Need a way to cool off this summer? Try water painting! Of course, you can't just do it any old regular way - try it with these gorgeously inventive painting tools from Stacy at {Share and Remember}!

Supplies You'll Need

  • Recycled milk jugs
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or string
  • Cheap paint brushes
  • Eager little artists!

In a nutshell - use the scissors or an Xacto knife to cut a hole in the side of the milk jug, attach a string from the handle of the jug to the paint brush {consider finding the ones with the hole at the end of the handle}, fill the jug with water and let your students "paint the town" with their imaginations! Lightweight and easy to carry, these homemade painting tools make it easy to keep your artists supplied with "paint" to streamline play and creativity. This is sure to become a favorite summer treat!
