How This Rainbow Blow Painting With Straws Works

This craft is really easy and is great for younger children. It only requires one step to get to the fun part.

Honestly, the hardest part for kids to do on this craft, is having the patience to wait until it’s dry to hang it up!

Just a little warning, there’s going to be a lot of paint involved here. Make sure you do this craft somewhere you won’t mind if the paint goes off the paper.

Step 1: Lay Out Your Paint

Alright, parents, this is your time to shine.

The first step in this project is to lay out the paper you’ll be painting on and then put squirt the paint on the paper in the shape of a rainbow-like this:

We chose to use normal white printer paper, but you could use colored paper or even do this on canvas if you wanted.

The options are endless!

Step 2: Start Blow Painting With Straws

This is the part your kids will love the most because it’s the part where they get to start PAINTING!!

Give your child a straw and tell them to blow the paint around.

We found that blowing straight down on it spreads the paint out the best, but even blowing at an angle was still fun.

Remember, this is about letting your kids have fun and be creative. Let them create the rainbow of their dreams.

Step 3: Let The Blow Paint Art Dry

This step is arguably the most difficult because your child is going to want to hang this beauty up right away.

Make sure you give it plenty of time to dry, or you might end up with paint all over the house.
