Corn Syrup Paintings

We discussed our sense of taste today. And what do kids love to taste most? Sugary stuff! So for art we painted with corn syrup. I put a small amount of corn syrup in each bowl (you don't need much at all) and added a few drops of food coloring.
The kids drew with a black crayon first. Some made a picture and some made abstract art.

Then they filled it in with corn syrup. It was like a stained-glass window.
They will take several days to dry, but they sure are beautiful.
