This may seem like a really silly idea, and I admit that I was skeptical when my sister told me to try this, but the kids actually love it!
“Magic” paint is simple to put together, super cheap, and yet it somehow occupies kids for quite some time (my kids played for almost 2 hours with the magic paint!).
What you need:
- Water and small containers to put it in
- Cheap paint brushes
Yep, that’s it. There is actually no paint involved, just water. The “paint” is magical, because it disappears! Seriously, my kids got a kick out of painting all over the sidewalk, and then watching it disappear. They also got to magic paint our porch, the house, and basically anything they wanted, so I think they were excited to have so few restrictions compared with normal painting.
I wish I could get the video to load, but Little Man was SO cute painting! He went and got Meow-Meow (his stuffed cat), and was making Meow-Meow hold the paint brush, dip it in water, and paint. He had such a blast!
Miss Magoo found out that if you paint on chalk and then use the chalk on the porch, it makes an amazing paste that is very colorful. So I have a beautifully bright and colorful porch right now!
