How to create this easy painting for kids:
It’s literally as simple as the pictures look.
Lay out the paper towel on a flat surface. (Make certain to put something underneath of it because it will get wet and messy!)
Once that is set up and ready, have your child put a few drops of the food coloring in each of the water holders. Stir that up once done.
Next, take the eyedropper and put it in the glass or beaker and have your child catch in some of the liquid. Then, hold that dropper full of colored water over the paper towel, and squeeze!
As the colored water drops on the paper towel, it will soak up and create a lot of fun patterns! And the best part? You can easily clean it up fast and lay out another paper towel for them to do this easy painting for kids over and over again!
