Painting with Hair Dryer

I cleaned the whole house this morning, so I wanted to make sure that whatever craft we did today was mess free, then I visited my kids arts and crafts board on Pinterest to see if there was anything there I could use and sure enough I found this idea for painting with hair dryer.

All you need is a cardboard box, some paint and a hair dryer. Sounds pretty easy, doesn't it? Well, I decided to line the box with some white paper so the colors would show since the box was dark brown.

 But.... my hair dryer BLOWS, not in a good way, it sucks! This is the result we had gotten from using the hair dryer:

I was determined not to fail, so I stopped to think what I could do to solve the problem, then I remembered that my husband has one of those big vacuums that are noisy, but work like magic AND they can blow the air out, too. 

I called my husband and asked how to make the vacuum work the way I wanted and then we had fun looking at the paint move around. I am glad I persisted, we had fun.
