Playing With Wet Paint

It’s fun to do activities outside as the weather gets warmer. In this paint activity, you’ll need an old white sheet (which will be used as the canvas), some paint, and water. Hang the sheet and have kids paint it. Then have them wash off the paint with a hose. Paint it again and observe how the wet surface is different from painting on a dry surface. When dry, use it as a tablecloth!
