For a FUN modern art project to do with the kids, add some black tempera paint to a 3/4 full bottle of glue to fill it up. Stir with a bamboo skewer, and shake the bottle well.
Invite your child to go outside, and make designs straight from the bottle onto a sheet of watercolor paper using the glue/paint mixture. [Tip: I recommend wearing play clothes, and you may want to hold the paper down to keep it from blowing away.] So much FUN!!
Allow the paint/glue to dry completely. This may take several hours or overnight, depending on the thickness of glue.
Next, invite your child to fill in the spaces left by the paint/glue with watercolor paints for a one-of-a-kind modern masterpiece! Emily was SO proud of how this turned out, and I love how each of these paintings is unique!! Bright watercolor paints work well for this for some amazing contrast. The glue adds some dimension and texture to the painting too!
