Pool Painting

Pool painting was such a treat on a beautiful SUNNY day! Finally after a month of rain we deserved something extra special to do outside.


Pool painting is just like marble painting but on a much larger scale. (Jada is in the pink hat that has swallowed her head LOL)
You can read about our Marble painting HERE





To do this activity you will need: a baby pool, paint, paper with tape on the back to stick to the bottom of the pool, a ball and some eager children.




This was by far one of the best activities we ever did.





I love that although the children range in age they all pulled together and enjoyed this group activity.





Thanks for looking and Please see me sidebar for all the great blogs I link up to:)

I would love to do this activity. I have never had a large pool. I am on the lookout this summer at garage sales.

Sorry, I had thought I had already commented on this last week, but I must have just shared it on FB instead.

I featured this on It's Playtime this week with a Big Art theme!

I see you've already linked up this week, so glad you keep coming back and playing! I love to see your posts!
