Add food coloring to corn syrup. Cut shapes from cardstock. Allow children to paint with the syrup and let dry overnight. This is done best when it is not humid as it dries faster. The painting always looks wet but will dry hard and shiny. It is one of our favorite activities. However, humidity will turn the painting sticky which brought many laughs when I said look it looks wet and put my hand on it and it stuck. Have Fun!!!
