Creating Blot Pictures

Creative Commons License weegeebored

What you’ll need:

  • Paint (runny, two colors)
  • Paper
  • Black marker pens

What to do:

  1. Drip the paint, both colors, onto their white paper.
  2. The children will then fold the paper in half, and smooth all over.
  3. Open out and see what interesting picture you have created.
  4. For extra effect, they can out line their creations with a black marker pen.
  5. A variation to try: drop a few blobs of runny paint onto a piece of paper and tilt it to form rivulets.
