Painting Fun
(Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star")

I know the colors for painting fun,
Green like grass and yellow sun,
An orange pumpkin and white snow,
A red rose and a black crow,
Blue like a mailbox, brown like an ape,
A pink pig and some purple grapes.


Make your own watercolors – SciShow Kids

Try This

Get a cup of water and a paintbrush. Let your child “paint” on the sidewalk using the water, and watch it evaporate. You can also paint with water indoors on a piece of construction paper.
