This is the easiest paint recipe.

You only need two things, hair gel and food dye.   The results are *bright*.   I just love the color pop!

Squeeze a couple tablespoons of gel into a disposable container, add food coloring to tint (we used 5 or 6 drops of blue to get the color we did).   Stir it well.

Note:   This recipe is NOT edible and it stains.   We would not advise using this to finger paint.

Use bright colored crayons as the base.   Crayola has a really nifty set of neon twistables that our kids love (affiliate link)!

They are perfect for this activity.   The colors are brilliant.

After you’ve colored in your picture, smear gel paint over the drawing.   The crayon will “pop” out.   Your kids will ask to color more!
