Some projects are tried and true—and this is one of them!
Kids will be delighted to watch their paint spread in crazy directions and blend together to form new colors.

How We Did It

Painting With Straws

Gather your materials and protect your workspace. This project is messy but really fun!

Painting With Straws
Drop a blob of paint onto your paper. Position your straw over the paint and blow.

Watch the paint go!

Painting With Straws

Maddie started out making a scene (and a very fine tree), then she saw what fun Trev was having just going wild with color and design, and she decided that was a fine idea! If a design starts to look like something--then by all means, draw a face on it. Or antlers. Or leaves. Or shoes!

Painting With Straws

Watch how the paint spreads in different directions. Add more paint to the paper and keep blowing through the straw!

Painting With Straws

You can also use a paintbrush to spread the paint around.

Painting With Straws

Try some experiments: What happens when you blow directly over the paint? Or to the side? What if you blow softly or hardly? Does your design start to look like something? Perhaps a tree, face, or antlers? Keep going until your painting is complete!

Painting With Straws
Success! No matter what.
