Summer Fun: Squirt Gun Painting + Ice Cream Treats!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Klondike. I received free product coupons to facilitate my review as well as compensation for my participation.”

Last week I was able to pick Lennox up early from school so that we could go home and do some fun summer activities. I am trying to let her have as much fun during the summertime that all the kids are having, even though Lennox has to be in school all day. The activity that we did that afternoon was a big hit – Water Color Painting with Squirt Guns! It really was an easy activity and Lennox loved how her paintings turned out! These were a great addition to our art canvas’. 

Here is how you can do the same activity with your kids!

Water Color Painting with Squirt Guns

What you will need:

  • Water Based Kid’s Paint
  • Water
  • Squirt Guns
  • Plastic Measuring Cup with Spout
  • Canvas or Large Paper


In a plastic measuring cup (make sure it has a spout), pour in a good amount of tempera paint in your desired color. 


Add equal amount of warm water and mix together well.


Pour the mixture into a squirt gun. Repeat the process until you have all the colors you want! I just did the 3 primary colors.

Once you are ready, set up your canvas outside – and let your little artists create! This is a really easy activity for many ages to participate in – I would suggest having plenty of additional canvas’ or posters available – as your kids will want to use up all the paint in the squirt guns! 



It was really hot outside that afternoon, so after we finished our fun painting activity, we decided to grab a yummy treat out of the freezer and cool off! Lennox’s choice was a Klondike Cookie Dough Swirl Bar.


This was the first time Lennox had a Klondike bar and I think she loved it! Klondike Bars are something that I always remember from being a kid and now they have so many great flavors; Cookie Dough Swirl, as well as Heath, REESE’S, Mint Chocolate Chip, Krunch, Caramel Pretzel, OREO, Dark Chocolate, Rocky Road, Double Chocolate, Neapolitan, and Original.


Klondike now has a newly launched ice cream treat – Klondike Kandy Bars. They are a combination of Chocolate Klondike Shell and creamy ice cream and candy bar goodness! Klondike Kandy Bars come in the new Mint Fudge Cookie, as well as Caramel & Peanuts, Fudge Krunch, and Cookies & Cream.

    Oh goodness, the squirt gun painting looks like so much fun, I’d have to join in with the kids to make my own. And those yummy ice cream treats have me wanting to head to the corner store and buy a Klondike Bar. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Oh gosh! Klondike bars are my absolute favorite ice cream! Now you make me want one! lol! This is such a cool idea with the canvas paint! Also a great way to post on your wall something really memorable.

    My favorite summer activity is mowing my lawn. I look forward to it all winter. Then, after that, I look forward to fall so I can rake leaves. Either that, or I like to go on family bike rides with my kids.

    One of our favorite activities is going to the many fairs, outside concerts and celebrations around our area!
