Absorption Art

Pin It
Exploring Science with Preschoolers

This week we have been exploring absorption in our sciencey type investigation time. I have a great guest-post planned for one of my favourite blogs, but in the meantime I thought I'd share our Absorption Art.

Preschool Science Investigations

The kiddos and I used dot markers and felt pens to draw onto kitchen towel, then used straws to drip water onto our designs and make the ink bleed...

Exploring Science with Toddlers

I'm pretty sure the appeal of this activity was the marker pens and water (fun stuff for a two year old) but the finished products look really pretty and are hanging in our window as suncatchers.

  2. I've seen this done with a spray bottle, but I love the idea of using straws. My boys would love that.

  7. How fun! A great idea! We've done this with coffee filters ... but not paper towels. I think we might be giving this a try later today! Thanks so much for sharing on this week's Kids Co-Op linky!
