Driveway Sponge Stamp Splash Art!

Today we skipped spring and went straight to SUMMER! It was HOT...close to 85 degrees, so we had to do something outside and WET! I found some sponge stamps that I originally bought for less than a dollar at Hobby Lobby to use for crafts and painting (they didn't work so well for that) and figured they'd be more fun in a sand bucket full of water. I told Lil Bisucit the plan to stamp some shapes on the driveway with bubble water and sponge stamps...he thought it sounded like a good time!
 First he had to pick out what stamps he wanted to use...
Then wring out some of the extra water....
Then he had to find a nice dry spot on the driveway to work. The stamps could make big blobs with too much water in them (or not much of anything without enough), but if you're really careful the prints turn out nice!
 When he got bored with that, we moved on to stamping with Biscuit ... first, he put a foot in the water bucket...
and ran all over the driveway making footprints!
 Here's one he made...
He made handprints too...
And splashed around with a soccer ball...
Then he washed rocks.
Finally it was time to clean up...he loved dumping out all the water!
 He was a good helper...
 He was all smiles after a good time - in a good mood, tuckered out and ready for a nap!
