Last week, my daughter and I had a ton of fun making straw blown peacocks. The response was overwhelming and I received a few requests for additional ideas. We are always up for a challenge and were excited to play with this technique some more. So, here are a few more blow paint creatures with a couple of free printables. Also check out our video on Facebook.

Items you may need:
Blow Paint Butterfly
Draw the butterfly’s body on a piece of watercolor paper using a Sharpie. With the medicine dropper, drop drops of paint in one color next to the sides of the body. Blow the paint away from the body on both sides. Continue this process one color at a time until you achieve your desired look. Let it sit flat to dry.
Blow Paint Lion
Cut a circle out of yellow construction paper. Glue it to the center of a piece of watercolor paper. Add drops of paint in one color around the circle. We used brown, yellow and a reddish color. Blow the paint away from the circle working your way all around. Add your next color and repeat. Draw the lion’s face in the middle of the circle. You can use googly eyes or draw in your own. Let it sit flat to dry. You could use this technique to make a beautiful sun, as well.
Blow Paint Unicorn
Print out the free printable. You can choose to cut it out and put it on a piece of watercolor paper or use a thicker stock paper when printing. Add the drops of color along the top of the unicorn’s head and blow up and away from the head. Let it sit flat to dry.
Blow Paint Jellyfish
This one was my daughter’s favorite. Print out the body template and trace onto a piece of construction paper. We used purple paper. Glue the body onto a piece of watercolor paper. Add your drops one color at a time right beneath the body and blow away from the body until you are happy with how your jellyfish looks. Glue on a pair of large googly eyes and draw in a cute little smile.
These are so fun to make and my daughter is still brainstorming new ideas. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
