Watercolor Porch Painting

Need a creative project for your kids with little mess? Watercolor paint on your porch! No paper needed, no mess–if they spill the water, no big deal! We braved the morning heat and painted away. The boys loved it!! (Which always amazes me when I find a project that captures their attention for more than 5 minutes).

I was asked to paint Walle.

It got unbearably hot to we moved the painting indoors. Unlike the 25 focused minutes we spent painting outside, the inside painting lasted about as long as it took to take this picture. Oh well! 
We had a blast porch painting! And the best part is, just spray off the porch to clean up!
