Kids Beach Activity: Squirt Gun Body Art

Squirt Gun Art Kids Beach Activity If you’re looking for a way to cool off at the beach or in the backyard, try this fun ‘body art’ activity.  Squirt lines or dots of water onto legs and arms, cover with sand, and then shake the excess off.  The crowd favourite at our beach outing was zebra (or tiger) stripes.   A fun way for kids to play with squirt guns in the name of art!


New Pinboard: Summer Puppet Theatre

 Kids Crafts Puppet Theater Handmade Puppets and Theater Summer is a good time for the kids to sink their teeth into a larger-scale craft project they can go back to all summer long.  Puppet theatres are a great creative activity – the kids can make the theatre and puppets, and then spend time creating and performing plays.   We’ve pinned some of our favourites here.
