Ziploc bags with tempera paint. We practiced color mixing, fine motor skills, sensory exploration, and letter writing. It felt like getting messy... without the mess! Again, just a picture no link but so worth sharing this GREAT idea.
WORTH IT: This was a really fun activity to do with the kids. I put them in groups of three and each kid/group did a different color (results were orange, green, and purple). I didn't have long paper so we used regular sized card stock. It worked with their little hands. Color activities- paint both hands different colors, then rub together to make new handprints!
