Straw Painting

This weeks art project was very uncomplicated. You just pour a little tempra paint on paper, and blow it around with a straw to make patterns. We used red, blue and yellow so the boys could learn about primary colors and how all the other colors can be made with these. The pictures look kind of funny to me, like they're sucking up something nasty.

We were really blessed this week when one of Jeremiah's co-workers gave us these! The boys, of course, love them. Isaac is a little big for them, but he still has some fun.

Adam and Jack are going to freak when they see those! LOL
The blowing paint looks neat too. I'll have to try that, I bet Jack would really like it.

Oh, such fun!

I remember straw painting with my little girl--18 years ago. With N. it was probably about 10 years ago. And the toys look like such fun, too.

Enjoy your kids while they are little! The time goes by so fast!
