This post is from awhile back. We were doing this again today so I thought I would re-post it! So much fun!
I took advantage of the back-to-school deals and bought gallons of white glue.
R loves to "puddle" it, so I thought why not make it a color-mixing, creative project. I put out the aluminum just to add a little variety from plain white paper.
I added a few drops of food coloring that "magically" turned the glue to rainbow colors....or the kids thought so anyway....squeezing the glue bottles is a great way to strengthen the hand muscles needed for writing. It is also a really good pre-writing activity. Swirling, scribbling and of course, how can they resist getting their hands in it. Creativity at it funnest!
