To create Cassie's Straw Painting you need to take the leftover bubble mixture from Bubble Printing and a straw and jump right in! The straw is your paintbrush.
Here is Cassie painting. It is nice watery paint and some of it gets trapped in the straw so it makes it kind of like a drip painting too!
Here she is painting...
and with her Masterpiece!!!!
To create the Painting that we blew the paint, we just spooned some of the same paint on some paper like this. You could add more or less as you go along.
Next take the straw and blow the paint around. The paint should be liquid enough to do this. It also helps to turn the paper around as you go along.
A little to tricky to blow around, but fun once you get the hang of it!
It was fun to see the colors mix together, especially since we had red, yellow, and blue paint (primary colors!) It was also neat to imagine things in the paintings!!!!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
DO YOU LET YOUR CHILDREN EXPERIMENT TO CREATE THEIR OWN IDEAS?
I think she might of even enjoyed this more than Bubble Printing!!!
