So today I decided that we would find another thing around the house we could paint with and I found some string.
This is such an easy activity to do and also so effective. With house hold painting it is always a gamble to if the objects we use will work, and this worked quite well.
So, choose your paints, get some string and away you go.
I placed some paint on a plate for Lily so then she could dip her sting into the paint. She dipped different parts of the string into different colours, and then we wiped the string a long the card. It created a really nice streaky pattern.
Lily preferred to dip the ends of the string into the paint as this was easier for her. After the had done this with a few different pieces of string, we had created a really nice pattern on the card. I think it was very effective.
Then after you have finished the painting, keep hold of your colourful pieces of strong as these will definitely come in handy for other activities.
So, here are a few photographs of todays activity.

Love Lily's t-shirt, lovely colours, great motif ( Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer) and pretty puffed sleeves.ReplyDelete
Fun and innovative but I am not sure our youngest would be as tidy or creative as Lily. Thank goodness for large, plastic tablecloths.ReplyDelete
