Students will explore different painting media.

What You Need:

  • white posterboard
  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • light corn syrup
  • food coloring
  • Lots of wipes for sticky hands!

What You Do:

  1. Cut posterboard into 9 by 9" square.

  2. Cut construction paper into 9 by 9" squares. (1 each per student).

  3. Cut a heart design out of each 9" by 9" piece of construction paper. Make the heart fairly large.

  4. Pour about quarter size drop of corn syrup onto each of the corners of the poster board.

  5. Add one or two drops of food coloring onto each spot of corn syrup. (Use one color per spot, for neat effects, choose 2 or more colors)

  6. Have student smear syrup until entire square is colored. Don't smear too much or the different colors will all look the same!

  7. Cut out construction paper over design. Matching edges of posterboard. Let dry.
