medicine dropper cotton ball painting


This is a fun activity that we hadn't done in a few months, but after reading The Color Kittens a few mornings ago, H asked to paint with medicine droppers.

What you need:
  • Ice cube trays (or something else for paints/mixing)
  • Medicine droppers 
  • Cotton balls in a container/tray
  • Food coloring mixed with water
  • Towel
I usually fill every other ice cube spot with a color and then put a little extra water in several other spots for mixing.  Tip: using a small medicine dropper will make this task take longer!  If you want to paint snow this way outside (or in), you might want to pick up some extra turkey basters.
