Kool Aid Painting... A Complete Success!

We are wrapping up our science observation unit on the 5 senses... and today we painted with Kool Aid paint to explore our sense of smell. FUN! We used cherry, grape, lemonade, and orange Kool Aid to paint our masterpieces. The classroom smelled absolutely delicious!

Here are some of our Kool Aid watercolor creations...



Here is how I made the Kool Aid paint for this fun classroom project...


Ingredients:

- Kool Aid packets
- Water
(I mixed 2 teaspoons of water with each packet of Kool Aid)

Materials:

- Ice cube trays
- Paint brushes
- Card stock paper

I just love, love, loved all the wonderful pictures each of the kindergartners painted. This was definitely my favorite activity from our 5 senses science unit!



... and here are some of the other activities we did for the science unit on the 5 senses:


Sight - We made binoculars out of construction paper and went on a nature hunt.

Touch - We reached into the "mystery bag" and described the items we felt (Lego, rock, cotton ball, etc.).
Hearing - "What's in the egg?"(plastic eggs filled with rice, a bouncy ball, dice, googly eyes, etc.)
Taste - We tasted something sweet (strawberries), sour (lemon drops), salty (pretzels), and bitter (olives).
