Ingredients:

food coloring (different colors)

Directions:
1. In a small muffin tin, add about 1/4 cup of corn syrup to each of the containers. Feel free to dilute slightly with water to get the paint to “stretch” further!

2. Add drops of food coloring to each container to achieve the color saturation you’re looking for! In some wells, add just one color, and in other wells, add multiple colors to achieve a secondary color. Discuss with your kids how mixing equal amount of yellow and red forms orange. Discuss how mixing varying amounts of yellow and red form a lighter and darker orange.
