You Will Need:
Poster Paint (ready mixed or powdered)
Washing Up Liquid
Please ensure that your child knows the difference between blowing and sucking before attempting this activity. And even if they do know the difference, how sure are you that they won't drink the paint and washing up liquid mixture?

In plastic cups, mix some paint, some water and some washing up liquid. No, I don't know how much of each you'll need. Be serious. Just wing it.
Place straws in cups and instruct child to blow. No, blow. BLOW! BLOW, YOU SIMPLETON, NOT SUCK. Oh for the love of Mike, have a glass of water and stop retching.
