String painting is a lot of fun to do with little kids. It is a decorative way to paint a simple picture and looks great if you mount it afterwards on a contrasting colour card.
You will need:
Pieces of string
Bowls of ready made paint
A cut out paper car
Cut out a shape for your child and place in front of your child.
Dip a piece of string in a bowl of paint and carefully place it on the shape.
Lift the string from the paper and continue with a new piece of string dipped in different bowl of paint until the picture is covered with different colours of printed string.
