Quirky Momma has an amazing blog which features fun and educational activities for toddlers and preschoolers, and includes valuable home schooling tips for young children. Be sure to hop on over there after you read the fun activity she did with her kids recently. Thank you so much, Quirky Momma, for adding to the fun here and for lightening my load!
Toddlers ages: 42months, 29 months and 14 months

- Food coloring

Here were the results of our red paint in the chocolate syrup bottle:
Let the fun begin!
Isaiah 1: 18 "Though our sins be as scarlet they shall be white as snow".
- If you want to adapt this activity for warmer climates you can use the bottles to "paint" the sidewalk or driveway. Food coloring will wash off the next time it rains. For other fun preschool crafts check out, Quirky Momma.
