Straw Painting

on April 22, 2012

My daughter loves painting and would paint all day every day if I let her!  This is a fun and easy way to change the typical paint brush and paint activity.  All you need are

Washable Paints

Straws

Construction Paper

Newspaper or an old table-cloth

Cover your working area with the newspaper or old table-cloth since there is usually some over spray of the paint!  Drop dime sized blobs of paint in the colors of your child’s choice on the construction paper and let them use the straws to blow the paint around the paper.  This is an activity only suited for slightly older kids who understand not to suck the paint in!!  It will create some really cool designs, enjoy!!
