You’ve heard of Life Hacks, right? Well, here’s a Mom Hack that I learned from my mom!
When the weather is hot but you aren’t up for the pool, all you need is a bucket of water and a paint brush. My mom used to give us those supplies and ask us to paint the brick wall in our back yard. And it was actually FUN!
Kids can paint anything they want on walls, sidewalks, steps,etc. Within minutes the “canvas” is dry and they can start over. I used to do this with my own son when he was little (he’s now 13) and now I have my friend’s children painting with water. And if you don’t have a paint brush, don’t worry, just a couple of plastic containers filled with water and you’re all set. Hours of fun!
