Drawing in Paint with Q-tips

We have these foam rollers with which the kids love to paint. I decided to add to it by putting out Q-tips. First the kids rolled paint onto their paper. (We used card stock.)

Then they took a Q-tip and drew a picture in the paint.

The paint dried pretty quickly, so they had to draw fast. When the Q-tip got too full of paint it didn't work as well, so the kids flipped it over to use the other end. They really seemed to enjoy "drawing" with something different.

It even looked cool with just some scribbles.
When the kids were doing this, it reminded me of pyramid drawings, so I think I will have to add this to my Ancient Egypt unit!
