Step 4: Thread twine through the center of the paper roll and hang (we did ours in the backyard.) This makes it easy to rip off each spray paint masterpiece and begin a new one!

  1. Love this one. Super open ended. I’d have the kids go crazy with the stencils before hanging the Kraft paper up. I bet the tricky part will be knowing when to stop spraying the water to avoid holes in the paper. Will def do this one. We are super into letter stencils right now…

  2. Looks like so much fun!!! Brings me back to the 80’s and how much fun it was to tie dye shirts. This is a much easier, cleaner way of doing things!!!!
