Things to Make - Painting with Spices


Another snow day art project (yesterday was our NINTH snow day of the school year) - I sprinkled some spices into an egg carton (cinnamon, turmeric, red pepper, cayenne, etc.) and let the kids decide how much water to add for painting.

Their paintings turned out somewhat "gritty" with a red/yellow color palette, but the kids loved "mixing" the paint and smelling the spices (by the end of the project, everyone had dipped their fingers in to taste something). Easy peasy.


We spent a lot of time talking about smells.
