Edible Traffic Light Painting

This week in our preschool we are learning all about 'Transportation'!  As part of our learning we painted a traffic light with edible paint!  The kids loved painting, tasting and painting more!
The paint recipe is super easy, and it dries shiny!
Karo Syrup with food coloring!

Painting with Sweetened Condensed Milk

Today we painted with some of the SWEETEST and yummiest tasting paint ever!

We poured a bit of Sweetened Condensed Milk into clean paint containers (you could use paper cups if you want), then we added food coloring to make each color of the rainbow and painted sweet rainbows!  The kids loved tasting the paint!  And it dries shiny and pretty -- but please note, it spoils since it has milk in it so you'll have to throw your cute painting away.  If you want to keep your project try Karo Syrup Paint found HERE!

Here are some other MARCH activities from my archives you might enjoy too!  Just click on the links below the picture to go to the snack or activity!

Applesauce Painting

Have you ever finger painted or played with shaving cream on a table or tray? I love it!



Not to long ago we were learning about 'APPLES', so we tried the same concept with applesauce! It worked famously plus the kids could lick their fingers while they painted! And there are all different kinds of applesauce out there!


We gave each student their own tray to 'finger paint' on so they didn't mix germs with their friends by licking fingers and painting more!

Edible Paint

We painted Christmas Lights with Edible Paint in preschool!  So easy and cute!  And Yes ... it dries that shiny!


All you do is take light Karo Syrup and separate it into cups and mix food coloring into each cup. Then put a plastic spoon into each cup. The kids dip the spoon into the Syrup and place the spoon (base down) on the paper and it makes the cute light/circle shape! Easy Peasy!

Tie-Dye Paint Project

Even though this is NON-EDIBLE I just had to post it because it's so much fun!!! It's a fun way to paint paper to look like tie-dye!Here's what you need: paper, shaving Cream, water colors (or food coloring), squigiHere's what you do:
Put the shaving cream in a tray (or cookie sheet) and flatten it with your fingers to about an inch thick. Drip different colors of the water colors on the shaving cream and spread around with your fingers (or spoon, or craft stick).
Then lay the paper on the colored shaving cream and rub the back gently with your hands to flatten and make sure the paper is covered with shaving cream.
Then you pull the paper off and squigi the shaving cream off and you have a SUPER COOL tie-dye print!
