Sun-Catchers ~ painting on wet glue
Paint and Play Challenge ~ Painting with Glue
We are back with another Paint and Play challenge with Crystal from Growing a Jeweled Rose and Vicky from Mess for Less. If this is your first time joining us, the focus for our series is all about the process and encouraging our kids to get excited about creating art with fun and unique mediums! Our challenge this week was to create art with Glue. We wanted to make a set of sun catchers to brighten our widow, so we tried our hand at Painting on Wet Glue.
I recently found these amazing Cosmic Sun-Catchers and I knew we had to try creating our own. Secretly I really wanted to paint on glue myself, but shhhh don’t tell my kids:) Plus this little art project involves the use of recycled materials and it only takes a few moments from start to finish (except for drying time).
Since Babble Babble Do posted such an amazing tutorial, I am only just going to post the pictures of our process. Make sure to hop on over to their blog to find the full instructions.
The kids loves squishing the food coloring onto the set glue. Such a simple exercise, but wonderful for working those fine motor muscles.
I think everyone’s favorite part including mine, was swirling the food coloring drops around in the white glue. It was so fun to see the patterns emerge and watch the colors mix.
I love how easy this activity was to set up. We always have white glue and food coloring on hand, so no need to make a special trip to the store! We will be revisiting this activity again soon!
I was so excited to share these with you so they are still wet. If you are wondering what our glue painting looks like hanging in a window with the sun streaming through, then hop over and check out these beautiful Cosmic Sun-Catchers.
I love finding new ways to paint, and this activity was oh so satisfying!
