Why? Remember those “smelly” textas in school? Those fruity scented ones? Or those scratch & sniff stickers?
Oh, what simple delights.
Jelly paint. Mmmm… scented deliciousness.
Mix a small amount of water into the jelly crystals. (That’s it… simple!)
How we played:
We flipped through a “how to draw” book. I asked them what they wanted to paint. M wanted a robot. N wanted a princess. I quickly scribbled their requests onto some watercolour paper, following the “how to draw” steps. Then painting commenced.
Throughout the whole activity, I asked them to sniff the paint. Mmmmm. The jelly paint smelt so sweet, they couldn’t resist giving it a quick lick. Yum!
