Squirt Art
Type: Outdoor   Skills: Physical & Motor SkillsPlay & Creativity
Squirt Art is an activity that allows physical expression through the mixture of colors on paper. Squirt Art also provides a creative outlet for built up frustrations in children, as it incorporates the use of many bodily movements.

Squirt Art allows children to freely and imaginatively explore point and shoot games without hurting someone on the other end.
