This was a great way to build my kids excitement for EasterThe paint colors turned out super vibrant (perfect for Spring), and the whole house smelled amazing while they were painting their pictures for the Easter bunny

Materials
Note:  The food coloring isn't necessary but is what gives these paints the vibrant colors reminiscent of jelly beans.

Method
  • Begin by pouring the desired amount of jelly powder into a bowl, using one bowl for each color of paint that you wish to make.

  • Then, slowly add water and stir, slowly adding more water and stirring until the desired consistency is reached.  You can add more or less water to create different paint consistencies.

  • That's it!  Now, it's time to paint!  Kids can use brushes, or they can dive right in with their hands!

  • You could also give them jelly bean candies to dip into the paints and then mimic a traditional marble painting technique.

  • Once kids creations are dry they can be left out for the Easter bunny. My girls hung theirs at their level so that they could go up and smell them. They loved that their artwork smelled like jelly beans
