The Glue is Melting

"Mom, the glue is melting," is what my daughter said as we were doing this.  Not sure what to call it so "Melting Glue" sounds good to me.  We colored white glue with a couple drops of food coloring.  Then I propped up a piece of cardboard inside a container so the glue wouldn't go all over the table.  We actually all got into this art project.  We took turns making puddles of glue at the top of the cardboard and watched it "melt" down.  It was a good lesson in cooperative play too!  It was so colorful and it dries nicely too.  Next time we will try it on white paper and possibly frame it.

It looks lovely! I find that whenever I do projects WITH Henry, its more fun for all of us :)

I'd love for you to come play with us this week at It's Playtime!
