Watercolour Bunting

Download Activity Guide

Great for a preschool room activity! Each child can create their own triangle. Together the children can create a beautiful and colourful bunting for the classroom, not to mention practicing their fine motor skills. 

  • Step 1Cut triangle shapes from calico approximately 22cm in length and 22cm in width across the top edge
  • Simply cut out a square 22x22cm and then rule a line from each top corner to the centre of the bottom.
  • Step 3Using the paint pipettes, squeeze watercolour paint onto your calico triangle.
  • See what other colours you can make when you mix your primary colours!
  • Step 5Once you are happy with the coverage, set it aside to dry.
  • A good idea is to hang your triangle on the washing line. This way it will dry more efficiently and it will also create some really cool drip lines!
  • Step 7Once dry, you can add your hand print with paint and write your name using paint or a marker.
  • Step 8Attach your triangle to a long piece of twine with fabric glue.
  • You may need an adults help for this step.
  • Step 10Hang your bunting up and enjoy!
