How to Set Up Rain Boot Painting Activity

The pictures are pretty self explanatory so I will not get into boring, obvious details.

However here’s a few tips & tricks I want to share with you that you might find helpful:

  1. If you want to minimize running around with paint boots outside the designated area (cardboard) I suggest you make a little border around the cardboard area. I turned out naturally with the flat boxes I had.
  2. Secure all pieces of cardboard together with a tape to avoid stumbling and tripping over.
  3. Use complimentary colors so they won’t make brown mud paint.
  4. Keep paper towels handy for cleaning hands etc.

As a mom, you sure know that not all activities are done as you intended them. Your child will take his own lead and sometime might even ignore the whole thing all together.

Well, it’s kinda hard and close to impossible to ignore a tray of bright colors sitting right in front of you.

With my little man, he was as enthusiastic painting with his hands as painting with his puddle stompers LOL. Hey, we’re talking  about 18 month old little dude here. It’s a little different with bigger kids.

I’m glad I’ve set up a large space with delivery boxes and would probably extended it a little bit had I more cardboard. He still had a blast painting, running watching the result.
