Photobucket This is a fun activity that requires very few materials. It's not a great one for toddlers though because they have a hard time understanding that they need to blow through the straw not suck. I like making these then trying to find pictures in the splatters. 1. Gather your materials. You will need a few colors of paint, containers with a tiny bit of water in each, a piece of construction paper , spoon and a drinking straw. Photobucket 2. Start by thinning out the pain in your container with a little water. You want it thin enough to make droplets but not so thin that the color isn't obvious. 3. Spoon a little onto your paper. Photobucket 4. Blow through your straw and watch it spread and separate! Photobucket 5. Repeat. Cover your whole paper with as many colors as you wish! Photobucket
