Make Corn Syrup Art
Corn syrup isn't just for cooking—you can paint with it, too! Here's a finger painting activity for your preschooler that combines pantry basics like corn syrup and food coloring to create bright, colorful works of art. Yes, it’s a little messy but you don’t have to buy fresh paint or worry about ingesting non-edible dyes. Help your child practice color recognition as she swirls the paint around the cardboard. For a more in-depth color lesson, talk to her about the color wheel and show her how primary colors combine to create other colors.
