I have been seriously MIA for awhile!! We moved 4.5 hours across the state and then were homeless for 18 days (We have pretty awesome friends that let us have their spare room for those days). Then we were on vacation for a week! Finally, here we are all settled in Roseburg, Oregon!
Part of our week long vacation we were at the beach. I had the kids help me collect sea shells because I had been wanting to paint the shells with the kids. We had a difficult time find larger shells so we also gathered some driftwood.
Over a week later we finally got to this activity, and the kids LOVED it!
We did this outside because I knew a large mess would be made. As soon as Bodie mixed his water and paint allllll over the table I knew I made the right decision to do this outside, next to the pool! 🙂
All you need is some paint (we used acrylic paint so it wont wash off as easy), paint brushes, and shells and driftwood!
Another CHEAP activity that kept the kids entertained for awhile.
