Spray bottle art time - 2 year old activity

 I have been trying to do more art activities with my son since we have been staying indoors so much. I know he loves to get the water bottle and spray the cat or dogs; so I knew this would be a fun project for him. Although it would be best to do this outdoors, under controlled conditions it's possible to do indoors.

I have washable kids paints which I mixed with water and placed in a spray bottle.
Paper to place on his art easel
Tape to hold the paper in place and the bottom of the paper to catch any running paint.
A rag, just in case the solution is too watery and you need to quickly clean up.

You will know immediately if your solution is too watery when you spray the paper. Add more paint to intensify the color and decrease the liquidness of the solution.

Overall, a fun project for my toddler. Painting with spray bottles definetly adds to the excitement of art time.
