Spice Painting

_MG_1846 Spice painting is a fun way to enlighten all of the 5 senses.  The smell of the spices, the touch of the brush to the paper, the sounds, the wonderful sights of the pictures and shapes that are created, and you may even want to experiment with tasting a few spices.


All you will need is:

Paper (preferably watercolor paper to absorb the water),

a few Paintbrushes,

Spices (we used tumeric, cinnamon and paprika),

Empty jars and
