This is great for mark making and lovely outdoor play on a hot day! So simple, no clean up! Fill up a trug with water, add mops, brushes, brooms, sponges, spray bottles. Sit back while your children play. Dipping their tools in and making marks all over the garden/pavement/shed. :)
Feeling like your outdoor space is looking a little... gray? The right decor can help a lot, but there's nothing quite as impactful as actually taking brush to concrete and making over the space. We collected a handful of smart ideas that can transform a porch, patio or balcony with just a can of paint (or maybe even a box of chalk, for the renters).
Plant lemongrass and rosemary in pots, containers or in flower beds on your balcony or in your garden to have a mosquito free summer! You can use them as herbs in cooking as well. Remember to brush them to release more of their fragrance before your outdoor activity.
