It’s finally, finally summer at our house and the kids are so ready to get outside and play in the sun! Water is always the first choice for outdoor summer play so we’ve been collecting ideas all thought the winter and spring to keep us cool and entertained during the coming warmer months! Although we’re planning on trying them all, here are what we think are the best of the best.
Water Blob Tutorial – The Clumsy Crafter
Oh the water blob! My kids have been asking to try this for months, even when it was freezing out. It’s at the top of our water fun summer list! I particularly love the idea of adding glitter and sequins to the water for a sparkly look but plain water would be a hit too. Can’t wait to try it out!
Water Gun Painting- Somewhat Simple
We are SERIOUS water gun connoisseurs around here and have regular neighborhood battles every time there’s a hint of heat in the air so I know this one will be a hit. Painting with water guns! I can see a party activity with this in our future!
Water Balloon & Sidewalk Chalk Angry Birds- No Time For Flash Cards
I’m keeping this brilliant idea under my hat until a hot day full of “i’m bored” moans comes. What a great boredom buster. And I suspect that Daddy will love it just as much as the kids will!
DIY Water Wall – TinkerLab
We’re planning one of these this summer for our water obsessed girl. Every time we hit a museum with a water wall or water table there she stops and there she stays so having a full time water wall at home is a no-brainer. She’ll love it (and so will her big brother I bet!)
