No party is complete without decorations, and Bonfire Night inspires lots of creativity with bright autumnal colours. Simple yet effective, straw paintings are fantastic, messy fun with a really striking result.
You will need:
- Coloured paper
- Washable kids’ poster paints
- Cover the table or floor with scrap paper – this will get messy!
- Pour paint into cups or a palette and thin out by mixing in a few drops water so it has a slightly runnier consistency.
- Drip a little paint at a time the paper, then use the straw to blow the paint in different directions across the paper. Try using thicker and thinner paint, different coloured card, colour of paint at a time or two or three at – all will create different effects.
What’s next? Sit back, relax and enjoy the party!
