Tempera Paint Straw Art

I love open-ended art projects like this one.  We've been exploring different art mediums this year, and this one was simple.  I set them up and could do some laundry at the same time!

These were simply tempera (poster) paints I got from the local discount store.  I had them squeeze small dollops of the paint in various positions.  Next, they simply took a straw, and without touching the paint with the straw, blew softly or forcefully, whatever met their fancy.

The end result was pretty fantastic, right?  I have a feeling DD8 (first picture below) didn't just blow, but maybe used her finger or the end of the straw?  ;)
