Sticky Bright Holiday Lights
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.
A few samples of what the children created.
With the lights that were left at school I used to decorate our
gingerbread play house.
