Packing Peanut Art


Maya had her friend, Z, over for a playdate today. We pulled out the packing peanuts! No, not a packing peanut "snowball fight" or discovery box with things hidden within (although that could be fun too!) but an art project!



Materials:
cornstarch based packing peanuts (Here are some but I found them cheaper at my local Staples.)
paper towels
bowl
construction paper 



Here is a closeup of the packaging:


Fold a paper towel and put it in a bowl. Pour water over it until it is soaking wet.












Then press the packing peanut into the water soaked paper towel
























and push onto the paper. 















They can be used to build, making pictures, anything you want! The kids were occupied for at least an hour, just look at their creations!
