Sheet murals! Half the fun is finding the implements to paint with: hands, a feather duster, sponges, fly swatters, grass. If they’re not free or already available at home, they are readily found at dollar stores. The four cousins happily set about splatting paint on the white sheets (from a thrift store) that we clothes-pinned onto the chain link fence. We used tempera paint mixed 50/50 with liquid fabric softener (I’ve only found it at Walmart.) Clean up, of course, is just as fun, at least until the bucket tipped over with the child standing in it!
And, as long as we had the paint out, we also made canvases for Father’s Day.
