Day 13: Hands on Play- Sticky Art



Day 13: Sticky Art
This is an open-ended creative play challenge, involving just one key element- stickiness!

My daughter had a ball with some frosting painting and gluing.  I made frosting (just powder sugar and milk with a drop of food coloring for color) and she got to paint with it and then stick lots of fun random embellishments on to create a masterpiece.  

Titus watching his sister and eating and playing too!

Yep, she got in as many tastes as she could. 


 We also used ribbon, guitar picks, felt stars, cut up paper, and a wrapper from her pop tart (breakfast)! 



She created 3 faces...how cool!

Titus was in his high chair and he got to "paint" with his baby food.  A little peas and some beef n gravy and he was having a good time. 

Play a little, eat a little!

I am still cleaning up but it is all worth it.  The kids are all bathed and cleaned and taking a nap.  Now it is of to mop the kitchen floors...they needed it before we started so I figured lets go ahead and get messy and sticky!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
