Painting with a Twist

 I have to admit that this is an old post but it was so much fun I thought I would share it again!

Ashlyn was getting kind of bored with “regular” painting so the other day we tried something a little different.  We painted a beautiful picture using straws.  It was so much fun!

I got 3 different straws and put them in the color paint she wanted.  Then she blew through the straw and blew the paint onto the paper.  She really got into it and tried to mix the colors to make new colors.  Then we folded her paper in half and I had her press on both sides to mix the paint together even more.  It looked great when we opened it up and it was a neat beginning lesson on symmetry too.

Here is the finished product that now hangs on our refrigerator.
