Set Up:

We started by adding little drops of paint all over our letter "W", then I showed my son how we could use the straw to blow the paint around, the way the wind blows against us.  It worked fairly well though I had hoped to blend our colors more...  In hindsight I would suggest watering down your paint a little bit so that the "wind" from your straw has an easier time blowing it around.  We still had a great time painting this way and the next time we sat down to paint my son wanted to use a straw rather than a paint brush, so I guess he liked it. :)

We finished by talking about the uses of wind, (scatters seeds so new things can grow, can be used to make power, push boats, fly kites etc.)
