Squirt Gun Painting – A Fun Twist For Summer

The last couple weeks we have been cooped up in the house with being sick and it also has rained so many of them days as well. We finally had a break from the rain yesterday. It was beautiful outside too. It was a little windy but I think the wind was perfect as it dried our paintings pretty fast! We decided to try squirt gun painting. It is definitely a fun twist on painting outside in the summer. It turns out abstract!

Squirt Gun Painting

What  You Need: 

  • squirt guns
  • water
  • tempera paint
  • paper
  • clothes pins
  • plastic baggies
  • scissors
  • tablespoon


  1. Take a plastic baggie. You will need 1 tablespoon of tempera paint and 3 tablespoons water. You will want to work the paint and the water so that the paint does thin out. If you don’t it is too think and you cannot get it to flow through the squirt guns. I used a ziplock bag for this.
  2. Then you will cut a very small corner off the baggie so you can drain it into the squirt guns. Close up the squirt guns.

  1. Take your paper and hang it from the clothes line.

  1. Now you are ready to go to town squirting the paper with the squirt guns.
  2. Leave the paper to dry!
