I am thrilled to have my good friend Rebekah from The Golden Gleam guest posting on Growing A Jeweled Rose today! I just love the messy fun of the activity she is sharing too! Take it away Rebekah!
I'm thrilled to be guest posting here on one of my favorite play blogs for babies and toddlers. I'm Rebekah, and I blog over at The Golden Gleam. You may recognize me from the Messy Play in the Bath and Sink Series. I share the sink ideas, and, of course, Growing a Jeweled Rose creates the bath activities. This post will take us out out of the bathroom and into the backyard with lots of messy, creative fun.
All you need is bleeding tissue paper, a tray of water, and butcher paper. A heavier paper like poster board, cardboard, or even an old sheet will withstand the water better than butcher paper. Staple or tape the sheets of paper to a fence or outdoor wall. Please test an area to be certain the tissue paper will not stain your fence. It didn't stain my fence but I can't guarantee it won't stain your fence.
Once finished, remove the tissue paper to reveal your child's artistic masterpiece.
Kids love throwing things and playing with water, and this is a wonderful way to combine art with active play.
