Last week we studied Galatians 5:22-23. We needed a fun fruity craft. I found this recipe for Scratch ‘N’ Sniff watercolor paints you can make yourself in The Ultimate Book of Kid Concoctions. The kids had a great time with this craft. Mix 1 tablespoon of water with one packet of Kool-Aid. We used lemonade, strawberry, cherry, grape, and orange flavors. We mixed our colors in an ice cube tray. One could also use a muffin tin. My husband drew the above picture which we copied onto cardstock. I also put down an inexpensive tablecloth purchased from Wal-Mart’s party section. This made clean up especially easy. The colors are rich and vibrant. Once the paint dries, it can be scratched and will smell just like the various flavors. The kids had a wonderful time and were quite excited.

NOTE: We did notice that the grape flavor initially looked black, but as it dried it began to look more and more purple.
