Kool-aid Art

I remember reading over and over again on the blogosphere last summer about creating art with Kool-aid on a rainy day. Since our warm, rainy days came a little early this year, Baby Bear and I entertained ourselves by creating one of these art pieces on one of these days.

Baby Bear pouring a packet of Kool-aid out onto his paper. He thought this was the best part of the whole process!

He actually got a little mad when I set the paper out in the rain because he wanted to keep pouring the Kool-aid.

This is what it looked like when I brought it in from the rain.

This is what it looked like after it dried!
This would probably be fun for an older child to create a pattern on the page and see how it turns out. Although Baby Bear loved pouring the Kool-aid, he didn't like letting the rain do the rest of the work. We'll have to try it again in a few months to see what he thinks then. Since he loved the powder Kool-aid so much, I think we'll try salt writing some time soon.
