Painting with straw

Another Pinterest idea. This homeschooling mom had a book about weather. And using the weather book to relate bad hair days. Windy…. so messy hair etc. pretty cute.

We have leftover colors so I asked him if he wants to do straw painting. (His porridge is not done yet)

Same tools:

Colors and straws of course.

This activity is good for concentration (I feel) and also focusing. Like he needs to understand that the movement of the paint is caused by blowing air into the straw. And how he moves the straw will get different lines.

Left right. Up down… all depends on how he blows it.

After a while. It gets tiring for him I think and he started painting it with the straw itself.

A very good bad weather activity.
