• Painting with SQUIRT GUNS

You know what happens when you say "I'm bored" to your parents? You probably get assigned a chore to do!

So when you feel like saying "I'm bored", grab some watercolor paint and squirt guns instead! This is a super fun and super easy way to create your own custom squirt gun artwork.

You'll need a couple things:

1. Squirt guns (duh)

2. Watercolor paint

3. An easel with clips to hold paper (or thumbtacks to hang paper on a tree)

4. Watercolor paper

Clip the paper to your easel or to a tree, fill your squirt gun with paint, and blast away! When you finish a new masterpiece, lay it in the sun to dry, and maybe weigh it down with a rock so it doesn't blow away.

Don't stop at just one! Keep going for a whole afternoon and you can make enough paintings to cover your whole room.
