Less Mess Painting

Do your kids love to paint but you cringe just thinking about all the mess it will make? I hear you!! There is another kind of painting that doesn’t make a mess and that’s painting with water books!

Our kids loved to paint with water at my parents’ house and then at our house. Now our grandchildren paint with water at our house. πŸ™‚

The paint color is already on the pages of the book. All you need is a bit of water to bring it to “life”. Just tear out the page your little one wants to work on, get a little bowl with some water in it, and either a small paintbrush or Qtips. We prefer the Qtips because they are very cheap to buy and can be thrown away when the project is finished. If the artist is the enthusiastic sort, you might want to put a layer of newspaper under the picture being painted. πŸ˜‰

While this type of book might not be as popular as they once were, they are still available. I found some on Amazon and also some online through Walmart.com. If you have an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet store, check there.

We currently have 2 beautiful painted pictures hanging on our refrigerator, compliments of our grandkids. πŸ™‚

There are other types of painting books that use water, but we’ll leave those for another day. πŸ˜‰
