This is a fab STEM activity. Investigating pendulums and creating an artistic record of your experimenting at the same time. Depending on the age of your children they can help build the stand, adapt the vessel and tinker with the hole width and viscosity of the paint to get either a smooth line or dots. Or younger ones may just swinging the pendulum with different amounts of force and in different ways to get different patterns.
