A creative idea for kids - Paint-blowing and Tic Tac Toe

A creative idea for kids - Paint-blowing and Tic Tac Toe
30 minMedium

Smaller children in particular find it exciting to see what happens when you put paint on a sheet of paper and blow on it. What patterns are created, how can I influence them with my breath? This stimulates the imagination and breathing is used to achieve an effect. And the result looks good too!

In this case, we chose strawberries and lemons – perfect for playing Tic Tac Toe with the finished fruits afterwards. But of course you can let your imagination run wild and create other motifs with this technique. If a whole fruit salad is created, the small fruits can also be used to do easy sums. No matter what you choose to do, one thing is for sure – you'll have lots of fun!

Tic Tac Toe ▪ DIY for KIDS | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

Pour a little red and yellow finger paint each into an empty jar and dilute with water.

Use the brush to spread blobs of paint on the paper. Use one sheet each for red and yellow.

With the help of a straw and their breath, the child can now spread the paint across the paper.

Once the paint has dried, strawberry shapes can be made on the red piece of paper and lemons on the yellow one.

Cut out the small fruits. Older children can do this themselves.

The lemons are now ready. Use the black triplus fineliner to draw the strawberries' typical pattern. You will need a piece of green crepe paper for each stalk. Stick it to the fruit and snip the upper part.

Tip: If you gently crumple the strips, it will look more realistic.

Your fruit salad is ready!
