chalk spray art for your kids

It’s a definite outdoor activity; so much fun but so messy, I am telling you! (but since it’s a washable paint don’t worry).

Lucky us we have a beautiful space at jeddo and teta house, but still my little artist manage to spray the walls, plants, curtains… leaving behind memorable pieces of art.

To make the chalk sprayable paint you need:

  • spraying bottles
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 3 cups warm water
  • food coloring gel (wilton as i always recommend)

You have to really mix well until all dissolved, and shake it before starting to spray.

The world of water, colors and art provides a soothing sensory experience and it’s an excellent avenue for children to learn physical, cognitive and social skills. I love those kind of messy activities, It’s an important part of early education. Children will be given the tools to develop and practice fine motor skills, for instance, spraying bottles are great for developing kids tiny hand muscles.

Get down on the floor with your child. You are the ultimate plaything, and any activity will seem more fun if your child can share it with you. Introduce the game and let your child improvise. But always talk to him while you play and you’ll help boost his language skills.

Chalk spray art develops concentration, problem-solving and planning. He learns how to aim correctly, but trust me in the beginning he will spray everywhere.

This game is open ended. You can introduce the brush or your kid  favorite play thing. Nady decided to spray the balloons, his favorite toy. He was extremely happy!

Small tip: If your bottle nozzles are clogging, means the inner tubing is touching the floor of the bottle. You only need to snip off a small piece of the tube so it doesn’t sit in the residual corn starch and get clogged.

Happy playing!

The perfect fun game for hot summer days. We are taking advantage of still being in lebanon to enjoy the outdoor plays. Fill up some balloons and tie them to a rope. Give your child a stick to whack them and let the fun begin!

Splashing fun is always a success, you can increase the fun by adding colors to the water or hiding a small object in the balloons, kids love surprises and having small things in bigger.

We used helium strength balloons, so the popping itself wasn’t easy for Nady (19 months) but he really enjoyed the gush of water, he was really soaked. I was so proud of him trying to pop the balloons, whacking hard at them which develops problem solving and fine motor skills.

This game will be spectacular for a birthday party! I highly rate this game for a large group of kids of all ages.
