I found these water squirt guns at the Dollar Store. I think I bought 4, however they did not survive my toddler hitting them against things at ALL :( I bought them to use by the pool, but it quickly became quite obvious that was not going to work out . So, I put the one that survived this active little boy up for another day or idea.
My twelve year old thought it would be fun to fill them with paint , and that is just what we did. This was a lot of fun. However, let me tell you VERY messy with a 2 year old. (or my two year old anyway)
First, I hung some freezer paper on the fence with clothes pins. This was meant to be our canvas. The thing with squirt guns though is who can resist squirting them. My two year old had a hard time keeping his aimed at just one thing it was so fun to see paint splat on toys and chairs and the porch and Big Brother. So, that is where messy came in. No worries we were outside and this is what a water hose is for. Not to mention all of the paint spattered toys are his anyway RIGHT?
|I ended up going inside and getting more paper to add as this project evolved.|
