Pick Me Up Tuesday, Get Dirty

My toddler loves to paint. I love watching her face light up with smiles but I don't really enjoy the mess. Do you? I looked outside and saw the beautiful birds and wanted to hear them chirp so that got me thinking. Minimal cleanup, great scenery, lots of laughs, all equals a win to me so outside we went.

Items Needed:
  • any paint or markers
  • paint brush
  • rocks (this is optional as Ava also painted dirt)
  • water
Ways to expand the "lesson" 
  • texture: smooth, rough
  • Size: big, little, bigger, smaller
  • weight: heavy, light
  • colors: mixing colors (can even see this in the water when washing the brushes)
