We were in the mood for a project, and since the rain cleared up after almost a week straight, we took it outside. I had this string painting idea in my head that turned out pretty cool, I must say. We used a roll of butcher paper, twine and paint to make this work. You will also need three people to do it successfully.
Tape a big square of paper down outside in a paint-friendly location. I used two long strips of paper together to make ours. Then cut a long piece of string and dip it into a plate of paint to cover it. Two people will hold the ends of the string across the paper, right at the ground lever, and the third person will pull it to make it snap and make a line of paint. Pick of the string and move to a new location and repeat it. Do it as many times as you want to make different sized geometric shapes around the paper. Let the lines of paint dry.
Once the paint lines are dry, it is time to fill in the shapes with different paint colors.
We used tons of different paint colors to make it really bright and colorful. The kids wanted to use pretty much every paint color! Paint away!
We LOVE how it turned out! Now where to put it?!
