We had some leftover unsweetened powdered drink mix that was several years old — I’m not kidding! It probably would have been okay to drink, but instead we made scratch n sniff paint with it. I lightly penciled in some fruit pictures for Emily to paint.
Scratch N Sniff Painting
February 27, 2009 by
It made very vibrant colors, and the pictures smelled soooooo fruity when they were done. Here’s how to make your own scratch n sniff paint — Mix a packet of unsweetened powdered drink mix (like KoolAid) with about 2 tablespoons of water. Stir with a paintbrush and start painting!
If I was smart about this, I would have made up the paints in empty baby food jars to save the leftover paint for other projects. We dumped this batch after it was done, but I will definitely save the next batch.
Oh, and last night we had a fun family table hockey tournament. I have a feeling that coffee table is going to stay that way for awhile!
