I loved using the corn syrup paint (and Sweet Girl loved it too). There is something really cool about how the paint/syrup mixture glides onto the paper. And I loved how it dries all shiny and pretty. Thank you so much to eighteen25 for the awesome idea!!
Paint tray or cups
Light corn syrup
Add about a tablespoon of your syrup into your paint tray or cups (I just eyeballed it). Add a few drops of your food coloring to your syrup. Stir the two together. (Note...I ended up adding a few drops of water to thin out our syrup a little. I think my syrup was a little old.)
Start by having your little ones draw a picture or scribbles on a piece of paper. This is Sweet Girl's picture of Ian and Olivia from the Olivia books.
(You can draw one too if you want!!)
Let the pictures dry completely before touching. It took ours a few hours to dry all the way.
Here are our finished masterpieces...
It's so cool!! You have to try it!
