You’ll need packets of unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix, papercups, paintbrushes, watercolor paper, and markers.

Beforehand, mix each packet of Kool-Aid and two tablespoons of water in a paper cup.

Tell kids it’s time to make scratch-and-sniff art. Have them use markers to outline their pictures on the watercolor paper. Encourage kids to use their imaginations.

Once they’ve sketched their pictures, have kids paint them with Kool-Aid paint. When they’re finished, have them smell their yummy art.
