We colored the paper with washable markers:
Then put them outside to watch the rain distort the drawings. Of course being Vegas the rain wasn't the type I'm used to being from Seattle! I ended up giving them water bottles to help the process along.
I used regular washable tempura paint by Crayola, we use it for just about everything. I started with her in the tub so she could see me put the paint in front of her. At first she looked at me like I was nuts, then she dove right in! Being washable paint it was extremely easy to wash off the walls, tile, and anything else she touched.
The girls had a blast and we have them on our fireplace mantel. Enjoy!
Set up your little one with the 2 rolls and let them decorate! *If using glitter I suggest placing a baking sheet underneath to help the containment of glitter...which I'm positive I'll have glitter in my carpet for many, many years regardless!
Once they are satisfied with their artwork, tape the rolls together. Punch a hole into the outside of the tubes and tie your yarn to make a necklace.
Now the fun starts, hide several plastic bugs in your home or backyard and have them find them! Definitely count how many your hiding - I've found lizards in my playroom in odd places weeks after this game.
