Think twice before throwing that old toothbrush out. Kids can use them to create fun splatter paint art and in this article I have used the technique to create an easy birthday card that even young kids can make with a bit of help.
Watercolour paper is fantastic paper to use with kids as it is so forgiving with excess paint. With this birthday card, you can use a black marker to make the design work even if the kids haven't quite managed to get the splattering technique 100% correct.
: 10 minutes activity time (not including drying time)
: Under 5's, 5-10's
