Painting the fence

Here is a fun outdoor activity for preschool students. Fill paint cups about 1/2 full of water. Give the students a water cup and a paint brush. Have them paint the fence on the playground with water.

This is a different fun activity for them to do on the playground. It is something different to do other than the usual of climbing on the equipment or throwing and kicking balls. Many preschool students love art. Painting the fence with water fulfills this love of art without making a mess of the playground equipment.

    Thank you for commenting. Yes, the preschool students always have a good time painting the fence with water. It is a different kind of activity for them to do outside.

    Great idea – we often paint the pavement or steps with a bucket of water, but never thought to try the fence.
