We hung them in the sukkah and then today I made something really special with all the pieces.  I’ll be sharing it soon.  In the meantime, here’s how you can have some fun right now with your kids.  Read below to see the easy step by step process and then see what we did with our paper towel art here.

1.  Pipettes – We use these all the time and they are super cheap.  Highly recommend picking up a pack.

2.  Liquid Watercolors – I love these.  Liquid watercolors last a really long time so don’t be intimidated by the hefty price tag.  They are the gift that keeps on giving.

3.  Paper Towels – You got this.

Tie Dyed Paper Towel Art You Can Do with Your ToddlerSimply place the watercolors and pipettes on a tray next to a paper towel and let your kids start squeezing.  If you have a young one they may need a few practice sessions to get the squeeze and release down of the pipettes.  My two year old recently got it down and Gigi (3.5) is an expert.  Art Tip *Store liquid watercolors in baby jars so you can cover what you don’t use.  For more art secrets every parent should know click the link.
