Jun 29, 2017 10:17AM ● By The Hood Magazine
Our friends over at KDLT News stepped outside with us to show fun and simple actives you can do right at home. Give a child a squirt gun to paint a picture - and watch their imaginations go! We have a list of the actives and instructions below and in case you missed it, you can check out the video here:

Squirt Gun Canvas Painting

Small squirt gun(s)
Food coloring
Canvas (or other form of a heavy duty paper)
Add a few drops of food coloring into the squirt gun and fill with water. Let your little artist squirt a masterpiece! But remember food dye can sometimes stain, so make sure you take the appropriate steps so your not left with a permanent reminder or this activity. Laying some plastic or cardboard down under the canvas is best! Let the sun dry the pictures and you will be left with a rainbow of colors!

Sidewalk Chalk Paint

Squirt or spray bottles
Corn starch
Baking Soda
Washable paint or washable water color paint
Mix 1/4 C of corn starch, 1/4 C of baking soda, and 1/4 C of water. Add in coloring of choice and shake bottle well.
