Painting with Jelly Beans

Ever notice how jelly beans leave their mark if they get wet....well, if you have a 2 year-old who tasted a black one, you might.  Anyway, it gave me the idea to try painting with them.  We taped a white piece of paper to the bottom of a box lid.  Then we picked out what colors we want to try.  We sprayed them with water and rolled them around.  The colors came out very pastel looking....perfect for Spring!!

Pin It

What a fun idea! I wonder if you could actually get them wet and then rub them across the paper to make marks, too.

I love this idea. We'll have to try this soon. The paintings must smel good too. I've linked up to your post on my weekly favorites here:

ooooh, what a clever idea. like darcey, i imagined these smelled good, too. i'd be afraid that my daughter would gobble them up before the art actually got made :)
