This fun activity is much about unconscious learning. Children have lots of fun using the pipettes, sucking the liquid in and out, leaving traces of paint on paper. By slowly adding another colour to the paper they can observe how colours mix and change. They are offered to blow on their papers. It´s such a coincidental activity, the results are sometimes really thrilling and truly beautiful.
I prepared extra pots of oil as well. Children were offered to use those on top of their watercolours and discover how the two don’t mix and what pretty bubbles are drifting above the surface leaving new traces on their oily way. Really entertaining. Good quality materials are as usually the secret of beautiful results, in this case ink and paper .
