Children love arty activities but sometimes, for us parents, all the splattery paint-and-paintbrush mayhem can get a bit much. What we love about this beautiful dandelion painting idea, though, is that it’s simple, self-contained and (relatively) splatter-free.
MFM crafter mum Sarah Cummins has tested the idea out with her daughter Annabelle, 6 – and they’ve shared some brilliant step-by-step pictures with us.
Sarah says she and Annabelle had great fun together, cutting up the loo roll tube and then dipping it in white paint and printing beautiful swirly dandelion patterns on paper. Though Annabelle is 6, they both agree that this is an art activity younger children – even toddlers (with a little help) would really enjoy too.
