For this monster blow painting craft you will need:

  • Straw*
  • Water downed paint
  • Paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Paintbrush

*Paper straw work well for this, but if you have very little children then a reusable straw made from silicone/plastic/metal would be better. That way you don’t have to worry about them destroying the straw after a few goes.

You can use any paint for this as long as you water it down. We happened to use powdered paints. They are great as they blend really well, rather like water colours.

Use the paintbrush to add the paint onto the paper and then use the straw to blow the paint. For really little ones they might find that part harder, so the art work might become a calibration. BB tried really hard with blowing the paint, but he was happier when he was painting and I was blowing it.

Once the monster blow painting has dried add your googly eyes and a mouth.
