Stuck on (rainbow) Glue!

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!

Thank you for reposting this! You never can go wrong with glue and kids!
It look like this activity was a hit....I am going to plan it this week. Nothing like fun activities to keep kids spirits up when the weather won't allow them to play outside! Thanks!
