How to Make Watercolor Blow Paint Monsters with a Straw

To make this easy watercolor blow paint monster craft you need just a few materials. You probably already have all of these things on hand. Here’s what you need:

  • watercolors
  • water
  • construction paper or card stock
  • googly eyes
  • black marker or pen
  • plastic straw
  • glue

First start with adding some watercolor to the paper. I added a little extra water to make it easier. Then, using the straw your child will blow the paint. It starts to move in a different directions making funky shapes.

Repeat this as many times are you want on the paper. We chose to do rainbow colors on one sheet. Play around with adding more water and less to with each color.

Let the watercolor dry and then glue on googly eyes and draw on features. Have extra fun with this part! Remember you’re making silly monsters so they can have as many eyes and mouths as you want.
