This is one of my favorite activities. Kids will love it and believe me You ll too once have done it. Pretty messy stuff, but so much fun to make. Each time you create something totally amazing appears. Exciting, isnít it? Lets start!

Paper, watercolors or runny paint,paintbrushes,straws.

Using brush. add as many as possible different color blobs on to your paper randomly. Just make sure keep paint runny by using enough water. Then take a straw, hold it close to paper and blow. Can try this -blow different directions, that will make the paint spread. Blow from right above- make the paint burst. Different colors will create interesting designs, shapes, patterns.

By using large piece of paper you can create some pretty wall art to frame. Using primary colors, to demonstrate child how colors mixing can create different colors.
