Teach little kids about Physics with this quick & easy Blow Painting Process Art Activity. Get creative with your preschoolers and kindergartners using things that you already have around the house. You’re definitely not going to want to miss it!
I’m so excited to share this week’s Blow Painting Process Art for Little Kids. Our preschool theme is Superheroes and we’ve been learning about superpowers. The topics for the week were Invisibility, Super Speed, Flight, Super Strength, and of course, let’s not forget about Super Breath.
Today we used what we know about physics and weather to make wind paintings. We talked about the wind and how it moves things around as well as learning a little bit about weather.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
The discussion question for the day was: What do you think a superhero can do with super breath? According to the little guy, “they can blow down buildings and make wind storms to scare away bad guys.”
We also played a fun game of Would You Rather? superhero-style. Would you rather have super vision or super breath? The little guy says, “Super Vision!”
If you have at least a few kiddos in your group, this would be the perfect activity to explore graphing with little kids, which is an important early math skill for preschoolers and kindergartners.
What you’ll need
- Inspiration Photo
Here’s how to do it
- Set out the Inspiration Photo and any additional materials. Mix water and paint then drip it on the child’s paper.
- What is happening in the photos?
- What do you think the weather is like in the photo?
- What do you think will happen if you use the straw to blow paint?
- Did the child explore the effects of wind on the art?
- Did he share his knowledge about wind or other weather ideas?
It’s hard to believe that I have a preschooler and a first grader this year. Wow! Seriously, y’all! The little guy and baby girl are growing up so quickly.
Because it was an insanely gorgeous day, I gathered together all of our supplies on a tray and we practiced using our super breath outside.
Not only did we talk about wind and weather, but also forces and motion. And we took a nature walk today too, which meant a great opportunity to apply what we learned.
Daddy mentioned that it wouldn’t be quite as windy in the woods and he was definitely right.
I love that we receive so many versatile materials each and every month. I’m able to quickly and easily adapt these activities for not only my toddler but also my first grader.
How awesome is that? Experience Early Learning is the perfect solution to homeschool unit studies from preschool through early elementary.
The amazing tools in each month’s curriculum kit lend themselves well to putting together comprehensive month-long studies on a variety of subjects. This month we’re learning about weather and physics alongside our Superheroes theme and next month we’ll be exploring the human body and the five senses.
I can use this curriculum with the Little Goose supplement for my toddler, but obviously my first grader still loves the process art and investigation station activities and we can add lots of fun books for both little kids that go with each month’s theme. Talk about a quick & easy way to plan for a mixed-age group!
