This is a quick and effective craft to do with children once they have got the idea of blowing out through a straw rather than sucking everything up it!
Drop a blob of ink or watered down paint (depending upon your mess/stain tolerance levels!) onto a sheet of non absorbent paper. Give the children a straw and let them blow!
Encourage them to blow all the ink blobs in different directions and follow the ink up the ‘branches’ and out into ‘twigs’ and even very young children can get effective results.
We loved that these look just like the stark winter trees and shrubs silhouetted against the sky line at this time of year! If you have a go at them do let us know, we’d love to see your results!

We did our trees on lining paper stuck to the table with sticky tape. When they were dry and we lifted them off they refused to lie flat but rolled into tubes. Perfect for lanterns! I poked a few holes in this one and wrapped it around a tall jar then popped a night light inside…stars!
