Paint Drips

The children participated in a really interesting painting activity that required them to use droppers to drop diluted paint onto a vertical paper. The children were fascinated by how gravity affected the paint. 

Depending on how much paint was dropped and how the colours were dropped on top of one another, some really interesting artwork emerged from the experience!

The children also worked to create some amazing communal pieces of artwork. 

This activity also allowed children the opportunity to experiment with the thickness of the paint - they realized the more water added to the paint, the thinner it would become and the faster it would run down the paper. 

Using the droppers is also great for strengthening children's fine motor skills!
