KARO® PAINTING[From: Color]
Written by: Pamela Newhart and Christi Clock [Pamela a teacher at Luz. City Head Start in Pennsylvania; Christi is a teacher at Epworth nursery school in Indianapolis, Indiana]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

Little ones can paint using paints and corn syrup.

What You Need:

•Clear Karo® corn Syrup (or any clear corn syrup)
•Food Coloring (mixable colors such as red and blue)
•Q-Tips® or Paint Brushes (or your students can finger paint).
•Poster paper (heavy tag board)

What You Do:

  1. Allow the child to spread a generous amount of corn syrup onto the tagboard using a paint brush.

  2. (Review color mixing and talk about what happens when one color is mixed with another.)

  3. Next, let him/her squeeze a few drops of two different colors of food coloring onto the paper. Note: use two colors that will mix to make another like red and blue or yellow and blue, etc.

  4. Give the child a few Q-tips® and let him/her mix the colors around with the corn syrup.

  5. The result will be a very glossy, shiny picture.
Once this activity is complete you can extend the learning up by stringing beads of all colors onto yarn, going for a walk outside and finding colors, or you could read a book about colors. Allow three to four days for these pictures to completely dry.
