What do you do with kiddos when it's 100 degrees outside and one of them has a broken arm? Water painting! These books are so cool! My mom got them for the girls a while ago and we still use them all the time. You use a paint brush and water to make the pictures appear but there is no paint and no mess (other than water) and you can do it over and over again. The picture dries and disappears. I've been racking my brain for fun activities that Maddie can do while she is in a cast where she won't hurt herself, or get her cast wet or dirty. Sometimes the simplest things are the best!
Charlotte is not so good at the painting yet BUT, she is good at drinking and spilling the water!! :)
