Make Messes with The Laundress





I'm so excited to partner with The Laundress today for their Make Messes campaign encouraging families to get messy with fun summer projects! Copeland had so much fun with this squirt gun art project we did, but what little boy (or girl!) wouldn't want to squirt colorful water at a blank canvas?!

Here's what you need to get messy with your littles
-Squirt Gun(s)
-Canvas or Watercolor Paper
-Liquid Watercolor Paints or Washable Kids Paint
If you use the washable kids paint then you will need 
-Water 
-Oral Medicine Dispenser 
-Cups to mix paint and water in 
-Fork to mix paint and water with 
If you choose this route, you'll just need to mix a small amount of paint with water to whichever consistency you'd like. Use the syringe to get paint mixture into the quirt guns.

Fill up your squirt guns with the liquid watercolor paint and let them go out it! We just set this up in the in the front yard while baby brother napped in his Moses basket. Copeland was so excited though that he kept trying to give Finn a squirt gun so he could paint too. He's getting a lot better at sharing ;) This was such a fun little activity and of course we ended up just running around the lawn, squirting each other with the colorful water. We'll definitely be doing it more throughout these hot summer days!
