Make your own colored glue with kool-aid

We love to do arts and crafts and thought it would be cool to have colored glue and glue that smells good. So we added differnet scents to the glue and made fun art with our glue.

We used Elmer's and Rose Art. I liked the Elmer's better, but we tried it first with the Rose Art cause it was on clearence at the store for $.15.

After we did the swirl art with the glue, "J" wanted to get a brush and paint to mix the colors. He had fun.

Easy to do:
1. Pick the color you want
2. Place alittle bit of kool-aid in the bottle of glue
3. Place lid back on and shake alittle
4. Then open and mix with something long(we used a chopstick)
Keep doing the steps til all the kool-aid is in the bottle of glue or you have the color you want.

                                                                           The fun glue art

                    After "J" did the glue art he wanted to paint, so we took out the paint brush.
