Summer Bucket List: Paint with our feet

We have been having so much fun tackling our bucket list. Our most recent activity was painting using our feet. I spread some washable paint into a dish. 

Then the little guy walked across the paper to make foot prints. A couple of tips. Put the plates really close to the paper or do this activity on the grass. Otherwise, you'll be like me and have to hose some paint footprints off the deck. Also, sometimes paint proves to be slippery, so you might want to do one foot in paint at a time. I think we will try this again on a day that isn't so hot. He didn't really want to paint.

He preferred to sit in the soapy water and cool off.

Stuff my kid says #22

Logan: Mom, I know how we get milk. They go to a farm, and then the cows pee the milk out, and then it goes to a building to clean it, and then we drink it.

Oh Snap!

One of the items on our summer bucket list is snap painting. We have never tried it before, but now I am certain that we will do it again sometime very soon. The whole thing was quite easy to set up. I grabbed an oldish pan and covered it with tin foil. Then I took a couple of rubber bands of different thicknesses and put them around the pan. 


We added some paint to the rubber bands, and then the little guy outfitted in fresh play clothes, snapped away. 

We made so many prints, and each one was unique. 

By the end, we were both splattered with paint, but luckily we wash off, so I plunked the little guy into a bubble bath after all the fun. We used plain printer paper, but next time I am thinking that we might use card stock. These prints would make gorgeous blank note cards. I'm sure Logan's grandparents would love finding one of these gorgeous prints in their mailbox along with a little note!
