This is a fun, easy activity to do with your children! It makes your house smell great and it is so much fun to do with your kids. Add in a great story (read about rainbows and paint one) and you have just done a great learning lesson with your kids! 🙂

I bought a few packets of the off-brand (cheapest you can find) Kool-aid mix.

Get out as many bowls as you have kids (or if you are separating by color, get out as many bowls as you have colors of Kool-aid. (Example: if you have green, blue and red, you could do three bowls- one for each color)

I have done both. Some days we do a colorful picture with many different colors and other times, I just use one packet and split the one color between the kids.


PREPARE THE AREA:
Get on your aprons and get out your ‘craft’ tablecloth.

So, if you are using just one packet:
Pour a little bit into each bowl with just a touch of water (a tablespoon or two). The more you use, the runnier it will be.

Mix it up until the Kool-aid is dissolved.

Give your kids a paintbrush and let them go to town!


The Kool-aid is scented so it makes your house smell great!
