Mix a bucket of clean mud, and let your preschool child use it as paint!
- In a bucket or other container, mix water with some clean dirt or earth (without stones, grass, glass, or any other particles); keep the mud thin.
- Give your child a paintbrush and have her dip it into the mud and draw pictures or write words on the sidewalk.
- Be prepared: She will most likely use herself as a canvas as well!
- Your child will have fun hosing her creations off later, or you can leave them for the next rainfall.
