I decided to try using colored water as a sort of toddler-friendly water colors activity. I filled 2 small plastic containers with about 1oz of water each. Then, I added just enough orange drink mix to one container to color the water without leaving clumps at the bottom. I didn't have any other colors of drink mix at the time, so I added a couple drops of blue food coloring to the other container. Add 1 paintbrush, 2 pieces of white construction paper, and an eager toddler to the mix, and you've got a great outdoor painting activity!
|Baby Bear tried dipping the brush into the paint at first, but he became impatient and dumped the orange water on to his paper. He painted this way for a minute or so.|
