straw painting

Pre-cut umbrella
liquid watercolors
eye dropper
plastic straws

I always love the way these watercolor paintings turn out.  Some of the littles like to apply just a bit of paint with the dropper and some like to apply a whole lot!  Once the puddle of paint is on the paper,  the children use a clean straw to blow the paint around the paper.  We added dictation on raindrops as each little told us what he/she likes to do on a rainy day.
