Sticky Bright Holiday Lights

      dec 3 013
This morning I mixed clear corn syrup and food colouring to
                     make paint for dipping.

The children dipped the back of the spoon into the sticky
         paint and then pressed it on to the paper.

     The paint is very sticky so it took two hands to make the
     prints.  One to press the spoon down then lift it up while
               the other hand held the paper down.

      This child made her lights into a colour pattern.

    This child started by drawing shapes and then filling them in. 
              It makes the lights pop off the page.

With the lights that were left at school I used to decorate our
                gingerbread play house.
