Water Gun Painting

The weather has been beautiful so we have been making the most of the sunshine and doing some fun kids outdoor activities.
We have been water gun painting! Yes I actually let my five year old loose with a nerf gun and watered down children’s paint, crazy right? Luckily, my garden didn’t turn into a paintball session and I didn’t end up looking as colourful as Rainbow Brite from the 1980’s.

What You Will Need

Children’s paint

Water pistol


Something to mount your paper on to

Just add roughly 50% water 50% paint into your water gun and let your little ones loose with it!

Jayden had loads of fun with his new paint gun and it kept him busy for most of the afternoon.

What do you think?

Water gun painting is such a fun activity that’s super easy to set up and perfect for the Summer holidays.

Like me? Then why not pin for later?

    That looks like great fun! We have a box of 60ml syringes left over from the days when Jessica was tube fed and it's just dawned on me that they would be ideal for something like this…! 🙂
