I saw a form of painting with a dropper on a blog or Pinterest some time ago and filed it away as a fun thing to try at some point. (Sorry I can’t find a link for where I first saw it). I decided that Lil would probably like it, so I searched high and low for droppers, never once did I think to look on the ever holy Amazon, silly me. Anyway I finally found some at Hobby Lobby and everything fell into place.
These pictures are from our second attempt at dropper painting. The first time was pretty much a specular failure due to poor planning on my part.
I put some paint in the muffin tin wells and watered it down a bit. I grabbed some small posterboard and Lily went to town. Because the level of the paint was pretty low she had some issues with sucking the paint up into the dropper, but with a little help from me she got it.
She loved making the bubbles and then playing with them.
She liked dragging the end of the dropper though the paint almost as much if not more than dropping the paint in the first place.
This last picture is from our first attempt and I think you can see why it turned out so poorly. I had to do all of the sucking into the dropper because it was on the plate. I don’t know what I was thinking.
All in all dropper painting isn’t Lily’s thing right now. I’m sure I’ll try again at some later time and maybe she’ll like it better. For now I’m giving it a 3 out of 10 crayon rating.
