It's been a while since we did some outdoor painting so when the weather turned a bit warmer today I thought we'd try out some cotton ball throwing that I discovered at The Little Bird Studio.
I taped a tarpaulin to the back of a garden chair then taped some large paper onto it.
Then I let the boys dip cotton balls in paint and throw them at the paper, great for burning off some excess energy.
That lasted for a while, then the boys took a more direct route and started painting with the cotton balls directly on to the paper.
Even little hands could do this activity.
I gave this activity a two star rating as despite being outside things did get a bit messy, oh and the paper wasn't the only thing to get paint on them....
We love outdoor play, and love to find new outdoor play ideas. If you've played outside with kids this week why not join our Outdoor Play Party?
Last time we had loads of ideas linked up, this one was my favourite - The Wicked Big Storm from Fireflies and Mudpies. It really made me laugh, so much snow! The fun we could have with that much snow!
