It's still summer, so get outside and have fun! Here's a great and creative idea for painting. Use a squirt bottle, or squirt gun. Just add food coloring to the water and have your child squirt at a piece of paper. We first attempted to squirt on pavement, but the color didn't show up. You could try adding a lot of food coloring to see if that would make the color show on pavement, or just hang up some paper. It's great for hand strengthening to have your child squeezing the bottle/gun and the kids think it's great.
