“Magic Paper Towel”

Calling all curious minds and budding artists! Are you ready to witness the wonder of paper towel and food coloring transforming plain paper into an image?

Imagine, holding a seemingly ordinary paper towel, unaware of the secret masterpiece it holds within. With a touch of water, the magic begins.

Ready to unveil the magic? Join us, and let the adventure begin!

They’re a versatile sensory resource that is recommended for use from one and a half years onwards in children.

What do you need?

Very simple elements:
*Paper towel
*Chalk marker or white crayon
*Food coloring
*Small container with water
*Plastic Dropper

Let’s start!

So, the first thing we’re gonna do is to put a few drops of food coloring in the water and stir it.

Then, with the chalk marker or a white crayon (depends on what you have at home), we’re going to draw an imagen. In my case, I drew a sun, a leaf, a fish, a heart, etc. Once done, we’re going to fold the paper in two.

And then, we’re gonna use our plastic dropper to reveal the drawing. This is a fine motor activity, in which children practice pressing and releasing with their index finger and thumb. At the same time they reveal the image of the paper towel, which could be so much fun. Kids can also learn colors and vocabulary of elements.

You can make as many images as you want, using different food colorings and plastic droppers. Which by the way are for sale 👀
