While your child has most likely painted before using paintbrushes, sponges, or their fingers, this activity offers a unique new way to paint!

What is Squirt Bottle Painting?

Squirt bottle painting can be done by using any type of spray, squirt, or squeeze bottle. You can even reuse old household items such as empty ketchup or Windex bottles, after cleaning them of course. Spray bottle painting can get messy, so we recommend enjoying this activity outdoors. This family-friendly art activity is wonderful for encouraging creativity, spending time outside, and having fun! And the best part? You’ll end up with a beautiful masterpiece you can display in your home!
