Translucent Painting with Baby Oil


Translucent Painting with Baby Oil

Alttag here

• Baby oil
• Colored construction paper
• Q-tips
• Small plastic cup
• Optional: food coloring or liquid watercolors

Alttag here

1. Pour a small amount of baby oil into the plastic cup.
2. Show your child how to gently dip the Q-Tip into the oil and use it as a
    paintbrush on the construction paper.
3. Allow your child to experiment with the oil -- dots, lines and small puddles are
    all fascinating and fun!
4. When your child has finished, hold the paper up to the light and see the
    translucent designs! You can also tape the paper to a window.

* If you add food coloring to the baby oil, it adds a colored tint.
