Activity for an individual child
Age group: 18-40 months
Duration of activity: 10 minutes
- Tempera paint
- Plastic spoons
- Light-colored construction or bond paper
- Plastic straws
This is a fun way for your child to learn about the power of an invisible force such as the wind.
- Thin the tempera paint with water to consistency of watercolor paint. Spoon small amounts of paint onto the paper.
- Show your child how to use the straw to blow the paint around on the paper. You may need to poke a few small holes in the straw to prevent him from sucking instead of blowing the paint.
