This art activity was so much fun.
I bought these turkey baster type syringes at the dollar store
over a year ago and have been just waiting for the opportunity
(and the nerve) to try them.
I used pizza boxes taped to the art table for easels.
The biggest challenge for the children was to figure out how to
fill the syringe with paint.
Once they figured it out there was no stopping them.
The paint flowed beautifully down the easel and pooled at the bottom.
It looked like poured painting that was all the rage last year.
To me it looked like the aftermath of a paintball fight.
There were a few mishaps along the way.
But those were very few considering the control it
took to aim and push on the syringe.
We had to show off this beautiful work out in the hallway.
