Blending Bags added 9-9-01 Original Author Unknown

Make color blending bags. In a saucepan, pour 1 cup cornstarch, 1/3 cup sugar, and four cups water. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently. The mixture will start to turn lumpy, and then thicken into a sort of Vaseline-looking product. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Divide into 4-6 small strong Ziploc storage bags. Squirt in a few drops of food coloring in primary colors, aiming for different areas of the bags. Press out as much air as possible, and seal the bags. Fold a piece of duct tape over the top for added security. Now- give to the kids, and let them squeeze and press the colors around. The colors will blend beautifully, and the bags will last for quite a while.

Water Color added 9-9-01 Original Author Unknown

Give each child a white ice cube tray and an eyedropper. Fill 1/2 the compartments with water, and color three with the primary colors of food coloring. Let the children transfer the water around into the other compartments, noticing the different blends and shades.

Play Dough Blend added 9-9-01 Original Author Unknown

Give each child two primary colors of play dough. Invite them to mix and blend the colors to make a third color.
