day 32 – blow them away

When you’re little, the best thing about art is that it’s fun. Here’s an easy way to create interesting designs that older children can develop to produce trees and background effects for other drawings.

You need paper, diluted paint or food colouring, and a straw. Tip a big drop of colour onto the paper and blow through the straw to send lines outwards. Experiment with the angle of the straw to control where the ‘branches’ go. Try adding a second colour.
