This cute craft is great for kids of all ages—my 12-, 4- and 2-year olds all had a blast. Perfect for when the kids are home from school on Break!
To make this cute bunting we used paper towel, washable markers and a spray bottle full of water. Super simple.
We began by drawing designs on the paper towel with the markers. Circles, squiggly lines, doesn't matter one bit. We did find that the thicker marker lines tended to work better. We opted for (or rather Mama only put out) spring colours: pinks, yellows, light blues. I am ready for some nice and pretty spring colours around here!

Once we had quite a few paper towel pieces coloured we laid them on a garbage bag. Next, we used the spray bottle full of water and got to spritzing.
The kids sprayed the paper towel on a "strong misting" spray. All over. Of course they sprayed more then necessary, a simply quick mist would work well, just as soon as the colours start to bleed you know you are done.
We left them overnight to dry.
Finally we cut them into triangular shapes and attached them to yarn. I simply folded the top of the paper towel over the yarn and taped it.
That is all there is to it!
Hang in a bright and sunny window, or over a door, or just about anywhere to welcome spring back into your home!
