Share Wildflower Ramblings!

I am participating in a blog hop called School’s Out: Top 10 Learning Activities!  All week, each of us bloggers are sharing fun learning activities to inspire and encourage you to learn alongside your child through these hot summer days!  Make sure to head over to School’s Out to see all of the other posts in this fun series!

Messy Outdoor Painting Activities - Perfect for SUMMER FUN!! from Wildflower Ramblings

I am sharing 10 Messy Outdoor Painting Ideas today.  Painting provides wonderful hands-on fun and exploration — and outside — there is even more freedom to create process art.  Better for child, definitely better for the cleaner-upper.  Children can create masterpieces, while learning in the process, in so many different ways.
Here I have collected many wonderful messy painting activities — some only need paper and assorted paints, and others use materials such as colored ice, squeegy brushes, paint bombs, sponges, drills, fly swatters, and squirt guns.DSC08912
