This is one activity that I remember doing it as a kid. These are so much fun to make and you never know what will come out of it, no two will be the same !!You will need :
- White paper
- Any paint (we used crayola washable paint) in a small container
- Pieces of wool/yarn (around 15-20" for each color of paint)
- clothes pins
- Newspaper to cover your workspace
Next lay the paint covered yarn/wool on one side of the folded paper in any pattern, leaving the clean end of the yarn out so you can hold on to it.
Then fold the paper back together and put your hand on the paper, hold down with little pressure so you can feel the wool through the paper and begin pulling the yarn out of the paper. You may want to hold the paper down for little kids while they pull the wool. (Ignore the prints on the paper, we use a lot of one side printed paper for artwork)
Open up the paper and oooooh laaaa a beautiful creation!
You need not dip the yarn in paint each time, the second and third prints look beautiful too !!
To make a larger one, put the paint dipped yarn on paper and then cover it with another paper and repeat the process..
Each one so unique and beautiful !!
Next we tried another method, where in after laying the paint dipped yarn/wool on paper and folding it back, we rubbed the paper from top to bottom. (NO PULLING the wool here)
But putti loved the pull method very much and did not want to make this. Guess I should have let her try this method first and then the pull method. Maybe we will do that next time.
