I’m always looking for simple ways to bring art into our home since my 3-year-old is happiest with a pen, crayon, paintbrush, piece of chalk, or marker in her hand.
I saw this scratch-and-sniff activity that uses Kool-Aid mixed with water to create watercolor paint in a recent issue of Wonder Time, and it proved to be a lot of fun. We didn’t have any watercolor paper, so we used white card stock (a suitable substitution).
Madeline’s masterpiece actually still smells like fruit (she painted it three days ago). Beat that, Cézanne!
