Amazing blow paint aliens
What you need:
Paper or card
Glue and glue spreader
Step 1: Make a blob
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
When your paint is dry stick on some googly eyes.
Will your aliens have one, two or three?
Step 4: Draw on the finishing details
Using a felt tip pen add a mouth, teeth, arms, legs and whatever other details you want.
Why not make a whole family of aliens?
Each one could be different and have a personality of it’s own. Perhaps you can think of other things to turn your blow paint blobs into too?
