    I found this really fun recipe for Scratch & Sniff Watercolors and thought I would share it. I get really tired of hearing, "I'm bored", on the weekends so I hope my kids find this recipe entertaining... -maybe yours will too! [​IMG]

    1 tablespoon unsweetened powdered drink mix (Kool-Aid)

    1 tablespoon warm water


    I recommend using several flavors of drink mixes for an assortment of colors and scents.

    Mix water and drink mix in small containers. (small muffin tins work great)

    Paint your picture the way you would with any watercolor paint.

    Let dry overnight before scratching and sniffing.


    *Tip: Kool-Aid will stain clothes, tables, counters, etc.

    Thanks for sharing - I never think of fun, easy things like this.

    My kids will LOVE it!

    Sounds perfect for a pretty spring day out on the patio [​IMG]

    Simple but clever. I think I'll try this with my nieces and nephews on my next visit "home" to the States. Thanks for sharing. [​IMG]
