Karate String Art

Karate string art is an interesting activity that will capture your child's imagination.


  1. White paper
  2. Tempera paints
  3. Baby food jars or bowls
  4. Strong string


Mix the paints and pour into jars. Cut the string into various lengths—six inches, nine inches, twelve inches, and eighteen inches. Tape paper down on a flat surface. Dip a length of string into paint and either drag or karate chop it onto the paper. Repeat with a different color. Cover the paper with color and line. When dry, the artwork can be used as a gift wrap or mounted and hung on a wall.
