For those who follow my blog, you might know that I like to do fun activities with my son but at the same time I hate mess!
So when I saw on this blog about painting in a jar, this was the painting way for me.
So we’ve painted using brushes and we’ve painted in a bag but this is great, so you have to try.
All you need is a jar, some paper, some lentils or beans and some paint and off you go.
Now the reason for writing this blog, is I learnt a few lessons….
1. Use a jar where the lid screws on and stays on. Ours didn’t stay on, so when it got thrown, I had painted beans all over my carpet and J.
2. Don’t use acrylic paint. This is the only paint I have in, so thought I would give it a go. But it’s too thick so the split peas all stuck together to make one big clump. I’m going out this afternoon to buy poster paint!
3. Try using a mix of beans and lentils etc. Different sizes and shapes will create different effects.
I will try again and let you know how it goes.
Trying with poster paint.
Also it really does what it says on the tin. I managed to get paint on the wall and it washed off amazingly! Well done crayola.
Looking forward to using our creations.
