Water Gun Painting

Water Gun Painting

If you are looking for a fun yet inexpensive art project then look no further. This water gun painting project was a blast and such a nice change of pace from the regular painting that we usually do!

I have a four-year-old and a two-year-old. While my four-year-old loved it and was able to execute the project easily, my two-year-old needed some help. For the younger crowd try to find water guns that have an easy-to-pull trigger. I used cheaper guns that I found in the dollar spot at Target, but don’t fear using the more expensive ones because from my experience the paint will not ruin the guns, it washes away easily with water.

A tip – if you have young and/or impatient children, then set this up in advance without their knowledge, otherwise you will have someone pulling at your shirt hem asking every five seconds if it’s time to shoot paint yet!

Tempra paint
Water Guns (I got the ones out of the Target dollar bin – $1 for 3)
Canvas (I found a set of two at Hobby Lobby for 7.99 and used a 40% off coupon)
Painters Tape (optional)
drop cloth or old sheet

Mix the tempra paint with a little water (a 50/50 mixture).
Use a measuring cup with a pour spout and slowly pour in the paint/water mixture.
Use the painters tape to make the desired design. (My son asked for stars – obviously :D)
Go outside and go to town!
Lay the canvas horizontally and wait for the paint to dry before taking the tape off.

Notice how the paint pooled at the bottom of the canvas, I really like this look!
