Water Gun Painting

Water Gun Painting

You only need a few simple materials to create your own masterpiece!

  • dixie cups (or something to mix the paint in)
  • powdered tempera paint
  • craft stick or spoon to stir the paint and water
  • water
  • squirt guns.

I filled Dixie cups with 1 teaspoon of powdered tempera paint & the rest with water; mix well. The Dixie cups were a great size and easy to bend to pour straight in the squirt guns.

Note: I purchased a 3 pack for $1 because I wasn’t sure if they would be ruined, turns out they come clean – YEAH!
