How To Make A Monster Craft Using Blow Painting
Kids start this monster craft by squirting a selection of paint into a pile in the middle of their card stock . I love using acrylic paints for blow painting because they have a bit of thickness to them which gives a great texture and allows the colours to marble together effectively when you blow.
How much paint and how many colours you use is up to you. Different combinations and amounts will create different and unique monster shapes. It’s great for kids to have the opportunity to experiment for themselves.
Kids use the straws to blow the paint around the paper to make groovy, colourful monster bodies. I like to offer jumbo straws and standard drinking straws because they make the paint move in very different ways when you blow through. Have a go and you’ll see!
Kids can keep adding and blowing paint as much as they like to make monsters of different sizes. All you’re limited by is the size of your paper and your amount of puff!
Once your monster body is made with blow painting you can let it dry and then add on any other features you like. Googly eyes work really well and we cut out some card stock teeth too.
How will you use your cheeky monster? This blow painting monster craft looks super cute on a greeting card, makes a fun picture for the wall and can even be turned into a puppet to play with by sticking it to a popsicle craft stick!
