Mix paint with water. You need it to be quite thin and watery to work well.

Then gently pour or drop a blob of paint onto your paper with a fat paintbrush.

Step 2: Start blowing your alien shape

Now take a drinking straw and blow the paint from the middle of your blob.

Keep moving the paper round so that you can blow all the sides of your blob and carry on until you are happy with your alien shape.

ALWAYS remind your child to blow and not suck the straw. It’s worth letting them practice blowing air first just to make sure.

Step 3: Add some googly eyes
