Painting with Water

I came across the idea of painting with water from the Not Just Cute Blog, so Logan and I gave it a try.
I let Logan know that since we were using water we could paint the fence, doors and patio stones and we could be as messy as we wanted!! He was excited immediately started singing the "Art is Everywhere" song from Yo Gabba Gabba.



He made some really nice Jason Pollock-like paintings on the patio stones
The sun was shining on our backdoor so I showed him how things "evaporate". He asked me to draw our family, so I drew a happy face for each of us.
Logan watched them all disappear and we talked about how the sun was drying up the water. It totally "clicked" for him and he understood evaporation.
The door was nice and warm and the sun was shining bright so the water didn't stay long on it. Logan had a lot of fun painting the door and having parts of "disappear" as he was creating.

We also enjoyed using the fence as a huge canvas! Overall painting with water was a huge hit with this preschooler!
