First we mixed Koolaid – you can use any liquid watercolor – with water in a spray bottle. Koolaid can stain, so if your child might aim somewhere other than the paper, make sure to get a washable paint!
We had leftover paper blinds, so I put one in the backyard and let O go to town.
Let’s see if it does something different if I spray really close… Yes! The drops are bigger.
The resulting grins made the Koolaid sprayed on my legs worthwhile.
Our final Jackson Pollack results:
We let our art dry outside all afternoon, and by evening we could bring it inside to hang on the wall. O remembered from last time that it’s fun to smell your art.
