Blow Art with food colouring

ImageAn easy way to get creative with your kids using items that are probably already in your home.

you will need:

  • paper
  • food colouring
  • container for food colouring and water
  • dropper, plastic syringe or with adults help, a small spoon
  • drinking straw

Simply dilute a few drops of food colouring into a small amount of water in a cup or jar and hand kids the dropper (or similar) to allow them to put a few drips on the paper. Yes you will probably end up with one peice of paper that gets a drenching but that is all part of learning! Then they just need to blow (for little ones they need to know how to blow, not suck! You will probably have to ‘model’ the process on your own piece of paper. S knows how to blow but still ending up witha green tongue…at least it was food colouring though!)

Let them add hand drawn or googly eyes with the ink is dry if your child likes spotting aliens in their artwork!
