We remember these entertaining creatures from our very young days, and we think that 'Blot Fun' is a fascinating pastime for both young and old.
Blot some ink or paint on a piece of paper.
Fold the paper in half and give the folded sheet a vigorous rub with your thumb or hand while the ink or paint is wet
When the paper is unfolded you will find the strangest-looking creatures in the world formed upon it by the spread-out blots. Make sure you unfold the paper before the ink or paint dries.
