Body Painting Outside

It has been so ridiculously hot here and I'm starting to run out of ideas for outside projects that can be done in the blazing heat. My kid loves to bounce around a lot and can't quite focus on one activity for awhile, so she gets bored easily if she isn't in the pool. She also doesn't like messy projects. I decided to try "body painting" even though I didn't expect her to use her body at all. She surprised me though and painted her hands and feet! It didn't last too long before she started crying for her hands to be rinsed, but its progress! She still had fun!

All we need for this project was a table cloth and some paint. We used a plastic one so we could rinse and reuse. We bought a large supply of paint at the dollar store just for projects like this. We have our "good" paint for actual projects, and our dollar store paint for bigger messy projects that we don't particularly care about the end result.

Enjoy and have fun!
