For this activity I wanted to try something a bit different so I made some
Corn Syrup Paint which dries glossy, shiny, and a bit "wet" looking.
I just simply mixed half corn syrup half washable paint.
I set up L's space with the paint, paper, some pre-torn masking tape in different lengths, and a paint brush.
I left the masking tape roll for him to tear some himself, but just in case he had too much trouble doing so, I wanted to have some pretorn tape to make it easier.
After making the snowflakes, he painted over the whole thing..tape and all
I even made B a snowflake so he could finger paint a snowflake too :)
Then you peel each tape layer carefully
to reveal your snowflake!
I hung them up in the window so the sun would shine through.
This was B's snowflake
and this was L's Tape Resist Snowflakes
and when we do an art activity I always make one with the boys as well.
Sooo, these are my snowflakes :)
