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.
