Paint the house
This is great fun in the summer, especially when mom and dad want to work outside in the garden or on the car.

You’ll need:

  • A large paint brush
  • A bucket or plastic bowl
  • Water

Fill the container with water and add a few drops of food colouring for fun. Give your child the brush and ask him to be a big boy and help you paint the house (or patio or swing or anything that’s easy and fun to paint. Any food colouring can easily be washed away with the next rain or a hose pipe.
