My two-year-old couldn't do this activity at all. (She can't blow through a straw yet, apparently)
My four-year-old did this activity with difficulty (her blowing isn't super strong)
But I loved doing it! (aside from a little light-headedness from blowing so hard :-) ) and I thought the results were very pretty.
The Imagination Tree used watercolors which I imagine might be a little easier to for a preschooler to blow around on the page. We may have to try watercolors next time!

This was very difficult for my then-two year old, too, and like you, I also had fun doing it!
This IS fun once the kiddos get the idea of blowing!! Watering down the paint helps a lot and also we figured it out that the coffe stirrer works better than regular straw:)
Funny! I guess it's a good parent craft :-)
Good to know. I'll have to try watering it down- that would probably show up better than watercolors.
Do you just dip the straw in the paint?
