I hope your holiday is a peachy one.
The grand fairies and I celebrated a little early by trying to create our own fireworks. Not with explosives, though, with paint.
We made red, white, and blue glitter paint bombs by filling eggs with paint.
We sealed up the holes with tissue paper. First, we damped the tissue with a bit of paint, and it stuck right on.
I tacked a poster board to the garage wall and they let loose with the paint bombs, hoping to create big, spattery, fire works on the paper.
A lot of power went into the tossing, but the eggs didn't make as much of a spectacular splat as we thought they might.
But a lot of fun was had in the process. The eggs kind of landed on the poster with a wet thump, and then just hung there like a blob. Maybe we should have added water to the paint for a more dramatic effect? It could have been too thick.
They soon discovered it was a good consistency for finger painting.
I wouldn't say the result we got was what we were led to expect from Pinterest, but it was still a happy experiment.
