Where I live it has been really hot. It’s always hard to keep kids entertained when they can’t go outside because of the heat. I find it’s always a good idea to have a few good activities that children can do indoors or outdoors. They need to be engaging, educational and allows them to be creative.
What better than this fun activity for them?
I simply used household items that you’d mostly find in your cupboard.
- food colouring (preferably with droppers)
- absorbing paper towel
- baking paper or tin foil
Simply have the children paint or drop droplets of food colouring onto the absorbing paper.
I placed some tin foil underneath just because I didn’t want the food colouring to stain my bench.
These looks so beautiful and I found I could be so creative.
Kids will have a great time with this idea.
You can make it educational too. Here I had a go at creating a number ‘4’ page.
Children could make numbers or letters.
You can also discuss how colours change when they mix together.
I hope you enjoy this one.
Please feel free to provide me with some feedback. I love to hear from you.
