Magic Milk Paint idea from Modern Parents Messy Kids. This is another one of those awesome 'science meets art' activities for children, and you only need milk, dishwash and food colouring to do it. Looks fun :)
Paint balloon using color schemes. Tie in with weaving or coiling for th basket. Paper mache a balloon, pop the balloon, add string and a basket for spring class crafts. Could go great as a bulletin board theme (Kid's Soaring to New Heights in Reading.
