Painting using a straw


•non-breakable container with sides (dishpan, cake pan, disposable casserole dish, etc.)
•thin paint
•straws (bendable straws work best)


1.Trim paper as needed to cover the bottom of the container. Place the paper into the container with sides. This helps control the extra paint that blows around.
2.If using store-bought paint, you may wish to water it down a bit for easier mobility across the paper.
3.Have the beavers choose a color and dribble a bit onto his paper.
4.Give him a straw and let him experiment with blowing the paint around on the paper. Caution him against sucking in through the straw.
5.Continue adding colors. Talk about what you see in the abstract design. What does the painting make him think of?
