With the weather getting colder we have been painting some snowy activities. This week we made snow paint.
On the easel we had shaving foam, powder paint in sugar shakers, ready mix paint in squeezy bottles and glitter in bottles.
The children mixed the ingredients to make their paint.
We followed the pictures and the instructions to make the paint. We learnt about how to make paint of different textures talking about thick and thin. We thought about wet and dry ingredients. We talked about the different shades of paint.
We had lots of fun making our paint. You could have a go at making your own paint:
In a sandwich bag mix 1/2 a cup of flour, 1/2 a cup of salt and 1/2 a cup of water. Add a few drops of food colouring and squeeze together to mix. Cut the corner off the bag and you’re ready to go!
