Summer here is halfway over. It makes me sad that these carefree days are almost over. But there is still a month left. And what better thing to do then to have fun!

Of course, summer days are not always sunny and beautiful. On one of those recent rainy days I wanted to find something fun to do in the house. I came across this on one of those mommy summer hacks post that is going around. It seemed really easy and it really was.

These are the materials you need:
1 bed sheet
Washable paint
Paintbrushes (optional)
Cookie Cutters (optional)
Heavy tape

I first looked in the dollar store for the bed sheet. They didn’t have white, or any light colors for that matter. I wound up going to Target and got a full size white sheet for $14.99. It was slightly more than I wanted to spend. However, since it was a full size, I cut it in half and saved one piece for another time. So , in actuality, it came to $7.50 for each piece. That was the price of the sheet at the dollar store. So it was a win-win.

The rest was pretty easy. I poured the paint into paper bowls. I gave my son paintbrushes to use. You can also use cookie cutters. Or you can use your hands and feet, like mine did. This occupied about 30 minutes. I did think it was going to take longer but he wanted a snack. When he figured out he can paint his hands and feet and then walk all over the sheet he really got into it. I didn’t get a picture of the entire sheet. This was of a small section.

I definitely recommend this project for any kid if any age. Especially with the really hot weather forecasted for this week.

I’d love to see your final products.
Have fun!!
