It’s Summer. We Need A Project.

projectWhen school is out for the summer, you’ve been outside all day with your fair-skinned inside kids and you just can’t listen to the Paw Patrol theme song anymore (but let’s be honest, nobody is getting tired of this pop punk masterpiece anytime soon), here is a fun and easy art project. Put a little water in a plastic cup, let your child squirt shaving cream on the surface, then with an eye dropper have them drizzle drops of washable watercolor paint on top. As more paint collects it starts to rain down into the cup and looks really cool. It reminds me of those drippy colored glob things from Spencer Gifts in the mall when I was growing up. It’s a relaxing activity, and at the same time a lesson in the Earth’s water cycle. Just don’t eat it.
