Squirt & Blow

          march 14 054
        For today’s art we pulled out the blow dryers again.
           march 13 056
Using eye droppers in water colour the children squirted
           paint on to watercolour paper.

Then using the blow dryers they made the paint dance across the paper.

I think they enjoyed the dripping more than the blowing.
I’m also glad I only have three blow dryers.  Anymore and
                 it would be very very noisy.

  1. Hi Maureen,

    The Blogspot program is shutting down? Completely?

    Oh wow! I better figure out what to do...


    P.S. Continue to enjoy reading your posts.

    1. Hi Joanne
      No luckily it's not Blogspot that's shutting down but Google Friend Connect. That's how people can follow you.

    2. Oh thank you for the response!

      Are all followers on Blogspot using "google friend connect?" Does this mean we will loose our followers?

    3. Hi Joanne, I'm lucky that my daughters are techy and keeping me up to date so this is what she tells me...
      There are various ways to follow a blog. Your site seems to have the same ways to follow that mine does.
      Google Reader will be ending as of July 1st. It is also speculated but not confirmed that Google Friend Connect will shut down too. So it is in your best interest, to keep your followers up to date on your blog, to give them an alternative like Bloglovin to change to.
      This link was shared in another group I belong to
      Hope it helps.

  2. Hi Maureen,

    Thank you so much!

    I would have never known any of this!! It's a good thing that I read your blog so closely!

    I really appreciate the heads up and support with this,


  3. Oh, what a fun way to paint. Unfortunately my daughter is afraid of the hair dryer, so it would not work for her. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!

    1. Hi Carrie, there were a few children that were afraid but if we kept it on low they gradually got involved. It would be fun to try with a fan.
