Let’s face it: Kids are sometimes drawn to things that are taboo, and sometimes it’s good to have an outlet for that naughtiness…but without the consequences!
That’s where this adorable game fits in, allowing kids to have the thrill of painting “graffiti,” but without any visible evidence.
First, I cut an artist’s palette for Travis out of cardboard.
Paint on circles of color (ideally in as many colors of the rainbow as you can) using nail polish. This will make the “paint” look shiny even once it dries.
I let Travis have a second piece of cardboard and permission to paint with the nail polish, because this was an added element of fun.
(Note: I love the shades from the No Miss brand, which are free of all the yucky stuff like formaldehyde and also cruelty-free.
Now it was time to set my graffiti artist loose! We headed out in the morning sunshine to make trouble. Here he is heading over to paint the fence.
Travis “painted” all over the bushes, and the patio.
Can’t you just see the glee?
He loved finding places to add his graffiti.
Uh oh, littering!
In sum, he had a blast getting his naughtiness out with this game. And the best part is that there is no mess left over.
