Here is what you will need to get the project started!

Tempra paint
Water Guns (The cheap ones are great for this, dollar store or dollar bin at Target)
Canvas (You can buy these anywhere for cheap, $7.99ish for a set of two)
Painters Tape (optional)
drop cloth or old sheet

Mix the tempra paint with a little water (a 50/50 mixture).
Use a measuring cup with a pour spout and slowly pour in the paint/water mixture.
Use the painters tape to make the desired design. (My son asked for stars – obviously :D)
Go outside and go to town!
Lay the canvas horizontally and wait for the paint to dry before taking the tape off.
