Easy Drink Mix Watercolors
various colors of unsweetened drink mix packets (you will get a few uses out of each packet)
Fill each bowl 3/4 of the way full. Add about 1/4 to 1/2 of your drink mix and stir until combined.
This yields 1/4 cup per color
Ingredients per color:
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons baking soda
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/2 teaspoon glycerin
2 drops of food coloring of your choice
1 teaspoon water
Prep bowls with lids or old baby food jars
1. In each prep bowl, add the baking soda and vinegar.
2. Mix well.
3. When the baking soda mixture stops foaming, add the cornstarch and glycerin followed by the food coloring.
4. If needed add a little water until you reach the right consistency. Be sure to put the cover the leftover paint.
