Blossom Blow Painting

The Grasshoppers looked at blossoms blossoming from tree's this spring. 

They looked at blossom both in the local community as well as in images online. 

The children created their own interpretations of blossom by taking part in a new form of painting: blow painting. 

The children used straws to dip in paint and blow through. 

The children excitedly looked at the various marks the paint left on the paper. 

They practised with levels of blowing such as blowing hard to make more paint scatter onto the paper and small blows to make little amounts of paint blow. 

They also used pippets to press and suck up small amounts of paint they could then drop onto the paper. 

Using fine motor skills to press in and release to release the paint on the paper.
