  DESCRIPTION     Painting with food coloring and Q tips  
  DETAILS     This is a wonderful medium for free expression. Food coloring comes in packets of four colors and somewhere around the house you have Q tips. Paper thicker than computer paper is best. Try sketch pad paper which you can buy in a tablet at a craft store or watercolor paper which is more absorbent. Use an aluminum pie plate for squeezing out your color, dip in your Q tip and get to work! Be forewarned, you're going to have colored fingers that will take some serious scrubbing to remove. A small price to pay for a fun activity.
