A few years ago we made liquid chalk. It quickly became a favorite way to paint and play at my house. Having 3 children it is fun to see each of them as they get older and enjoy things that maybe the year before they did not really get into or just were not old enough. This year little brother has really become fond of chalk and when introduced to liquid chalk he was thrilled to play with it. Regular, old fashioned chalk is a go to activity over here but when we make the Liquid Chalk Recipe it is a treat to the kids to play. It makes it a fun sensory play activity for the children. I decided to add a little holiday scent to the mix. We ended up with Sugar Cookie, Cranberry Mandarin, and Peppermint Liquid chalk paint to enjoy.
Scented Liquid Chalk Recipe- great for sensory art
Now we had fun Holiday Scented Liquid Chalk to enjoy for some Sensory Art.
I sat out a large cardboard box we had on the porch. I tried to let the kids paint with mistletoe but they preferred the paint brush.
My 2 yr painting. He not only painted the cardboard but his socks and when he ran out of room on his sock he took them off and painted his feet. I was laughing because it was silly but it was also creative on his part.
This sensory art project was the perfect open ended afternoon play for my children. Both 2 yr and 5 yr really enjoyed it.
The scented paint was a great sensory experience and the fun scents of sugar cookie, cranberry mandarin, and peppermint were great to get in the holiday spirit.
What I used:
Cornstarch, water, food coloring, oil scents, Cranberry Mandarin, Sugar Cookie, and Peppermint extract.
What I did:
I dumped cornstarch in a cup and added water and mixed. I poured it into a muffin tin. I colored and scented the individual cups of the muffin tin.
