painting with water

I am taking part in the Simple Play at Home Blog Hop and am loving all of the ideas. In a world where we seem to over complicate things, sometimes it's great to remember that simple can often be better. One of the activities that keeps my toddlers busy for ages is painting with water. I don't mean those lovely water painting books (although they're a hit in our house too), I mean literally painting with water.

We get a big bucket of water, a combination of paint brushes and roller brushes (you can buy those from Amazon here) and they paint everything outside. The fence, the wall, the cubby house. Anything. The best bit about this is that it's mess free, and they will generally play with this activity long enough for me to enjoy a cup of coffee.
