We love to have fun and it seems like my kids love projects. Some projects are clean and calm while other’s are messy. My children seem to enjoy the messy projects the best! I think these messy projects will be great for outdoor Summer fun. This post is part of a Top 10 Summer posts series so be sure to scroll all the way day for more incredible Summer fun ideas!
What Summer is complete without some tie dye fun? Check out this Water Shooter Tie-Dye Outdoor Fun from Fantastic Fun and Learning.
My kids love bubbles and think this Rainbow bubble shooter would even be fun for my big kids! I found this super fun activity with simple instructions on Housing a Forest.
Since dandelions bloom for many months here in Ohio I thought this Outdoor Dandelion Messy Water Play from Sugar Aunts would be a great project to try with my younger boys! If you don’t have water beans then you could add pebbles or sand or other icky messy fun.
Maybe your children love to paint but you don’t love the mess. Check out this activity from Hands on as We Grow about how to Paint with Frozen Paint Cubes on a Hot Day.
Have you put off Science experiments because you don’t have time in the school year or you don’t like the mess inside? Head outside and you can learn about surface tension with this paperclips and water experiment from Buggy and Buddy.
Do you have any Summer birthdays? If you do, then you might enjoy this DIY Messy Art Birthday Party from Sow Sprout Play. You don’t have to be celebrating a birthday to enjoy this messy fun.
What child doesn’t like to play with squirt guns? Even my toddler loves squeezing the trigger of his water gun. Make your water gun play more fun like Therapy Fun Zone suggest by Propelling a Ball.
Do you have some children that crave sensory exploration? Give this Rainbow Alphabet Spaghetti play from The Imagination Tree a try. Our library had this activity last Summer as part of there Summer Reading Club kickoff!
Look how Happy Hooligans give Mud Kitchen Play a whole new meaning. By adding just the right tools and accessories you can take simple mud play to the next level.
Fine motor and art are a great combination in this Rubberband Snap Art activity from Teach Preschool. I would definitely take this one outside since my kids love making a small mess into a very BIG mess.
