Painting with Kool-Aid Infants, toddlers, and preschool aged children are at greater risk for heat related conditions like dehydration and heat exhaustion so it is important to take the proper precautions. Daycare providers and preschool teachers must make careful decisions about when to let kids play outside and when to keep them indoors. Cool off on a warm summer afternoon while making a piece of Kool-Aid art.
You will need:
- Ice cubes
- Kool-Aid (assorted flavors/colors). Use one packet of each color per picture.
- White construction paper
Step One: Place construction paper on a hard surface.
Step Two: Pour the Kool-Aid powder (one color at a time) over the paper.
Step Three: Give each child an ice cube. Have them rub the ice cube over the powder.
Step Four: Add more Kool-Aid colors or designs, making sure not to saturate the paper too much (you don't want it to rip!) until your picture is complete.
Step Five: Let the picture dry, then, shake any excess Kool-Aid powder off the paper.
