Bonfire Painting

Here is a clever technique which will allow children to create a really effective bonfire painting for Bonfire Night (or Holi, or Fourth of July, or Diwali) or a campfire for summer...

Bonfire painting

You will need:

Paper
Paint in yellow, red and orange
Tissues

Instructions:

Squirt some yellow paint at the bottom middle of the paper.

Scrunch up a tissue. Dip into the paint and use it to spread the paint outwards.

Repeat with orange and then red. Each time add a bit less paint so that it will not spread as far.

You will end up with a surprisingly effective bonfire painting for Bonfire Night!
