Blowing paint through straws. Summertime painting can’t get much more fun!
- Put one straw in each paint jar.
- Spread newspaper or a large piece of butcher paper over your workspace. We did this outside on the washable plastic kids table and still covered it with paper. Okay, it goes everywhere, but that’s what washable paints are for … right?!
- Use paint shirts! Or on a nice, warm day my 2-year-old went for the shirtless technique.
- Dip one end of the straw in the paint (we did go over the “don’t suck in” rule)
P.S. Don’t stand directly in front of your kids trying to take a cute picture while they are blowing, you will get paint-splattered
I let these dry, then we cut star shapes out of them to use for 4th of July decorations. I love how they turned out!!
