Eyedropper Art

It’s a quick filler activity for those times when our schedule gets disrupted, or baby is about to wake up from a nap and there is no point in starting a longer craft session/ board game, or even when a war over toy is brewing between the siblings and I need to quickly switch their focus.  I found this project in a book we found at the library called Crafty Kids.  Everything required for this art session is easily found in most kitchens and can be put together in a matter of seconds.  Actually, my 4-year old is capable of putting it all together on her own.

Things needed

  • Paper Towels
  • Food colorings
  • Eyedropper
  • Ice cube tray or muffin tin
  • Water in a small jug
  • Construction paper for framing (optional)
  • Toothpick for mixing food coloring (optional)
  • Pipe cleaner to make a butterfly (optional)

What to do
1. Ask your child to fill a tin or tray with water.

2. Add a few drops of food coloring to water.  Mix with a tip of an eyedropper or toothpick

3. Fill the eyedropper and let the paint fall on a paper towel

4.  Go wild exploring the colors or try to create a painting

My kids could do it all day

5. Dry the art on cookie sheets

6. When the paper is dry, you can frame it with construction paper or use pipe cleaner to form a butterfly

My kids like to tie strings to the pipe cleaners and make their butterflies flutter around and off the porch …

I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.|
