“Spilt Milk” Craft

“Spilt Milk” Craft

Yesterday, I discussed the abstract beauty of spilt milk.  Today, I am going to teach you how to spill your milk in a beautiful way.

I have done this craft with both elementary students and college peers, and both groups enjoyed naming their creations.  With basic craft-cabinet supplies and a little bit of creative thinking you can make your own abstract paintings as well.

Supplies:

  • Paint
  • Construction paper
  • Straws (optional)
