Colorful Spray Bottle Painting Activity


  • Water Bottles
  • Watercolor Paper
  • Liquid Watercolors
  • Cardboard or wooden board


  1. Arrange the cardboard in the yard, then clip a sheet of watercolor paper to it.
  2. Invite your kids to fill their water bottles with liquid watercolors, then let them have fun painting! (Tip: No cardboard or wooden board? That’s okay! Kids can use a thumbtack to secure their paper to a tree.)
  3. Allow the paintings to dry in the grass. If needed, weigh the paper down with a rock or another clip.
  4. Each painting was unique and as beautiful as the child who made it!
  5. This art project has little clean-up and very little direction, which makes it easy and fun!
