So I really want my kids to express themselves and have their art work be about their creativity not what I want them to do. So, our painting day turned a little different every step of the way.

I asked Ally what she wanted to paint with as I was taking out the paints and paintbrushes given to us by Craft Projects. She declared she wanted to use straws. I thought she was talking about cut straws like we have done before, but she had a different idea.
I admit, I was a little nervous to have her suck paint up the straw, but she was very careful and only put a little paint in. I don't recommend this to do with young children. I was simply letting her take the lead.
Splat Splat Splat. It was a nice effect! only very little paint came out each time. Medicine droppers probably get the job done a bit better.
