So here are some of the results of this project. I loved this fun project, the kids reaction to dripping paint as tentacles was right out of a magic show!
I was nervous at first to allow splattering for the final effect but gave it a whirl eventually, and I was wrong to worry. The best way to "splatter" paint is to hold your non-brush hand 2-3 inches above the painting and tap you paint filled brush on your hand. Easy! I was too busy to take pictures of this and the final product but I'm sure you can imagine the cuteness.
