Paint with Food!
Kids love doing crafts and they love food. Here's an opportunity for them to combine two of their favorite things! By creating natural paints out of foods, kindergarteners will learn how color was found and used (before the invention of markers and crayons). From mustard to beets, there are tons of foods that can be used to dye clothing or paint pictures. This activity not only allows kids to get creative, it also helps them learn about all of the natural color around them.
What You Need:
- Foods for painting (dry mustard, paprika, cocoa, blackberries, curry, beets, red currants and more)
- Watercolor paper
- Muffin tin
- OPTIONAL: measuring cup or medicine dropper
