How to Make Kool-Aid Paint A Recipe For Kids

C loves to paint and I love finding new painting ideas for kids he will enjoy and learn from.   The paint you make with Kool-Aid makes a water color type of paint.  This recipe for paint could not be easier to mix up and use.  Plus it smells wonderful.  C loves to pick his colors based on different smells. This is so much fun!

You will need: 

  • packets of Kool-Aid a different pack /color for each different color you would like to make
  • a Tablespoon 
  • a bowl or small container to mix it up
  • water

I love that C loves to paint.  He might just get a love of art activities from his Mama.
