Slide Painting is a fun & messy outdoor painting activity. This year, we set up our slide indoors even before the weather was warm outside. As much as the kids enjoyed sliding and playing on it, they loved to pretend play with their dolls. One day Miss D took her toy cars and started sliding it down to see what happens and got really excited. For a while, the slide was her ramp. That gave me the idea to try slide painting. We tried Painting with Cars a while back and kids seemed to enjoy it. So we used cars along with textured balls for this activity.

Miss A(3.5) & Miss D(2.5) loved this activity. They enjoyed watching the cars drive down the slide. They dipped the ball in paint & rolled it down the slide. Then they drove the cars up and down the slide. Their hands got all messy with paint.After painting, they helped in cleaning – washed the cars, washed the slide all clean, mixed all the paint together made a big mess and then cleaned the bowls.😀 This activity was a definite hit because they keep asking to do it again!
