Hi Skip to my Lou readers! I’m Rebecca, and you can find me at The Crafted Sparrow. Summers at our house are all about finding fun activities that help beat that summer boredom and encourage creativity. Today I’m sharing this fun DIY Scented Colored Glue. This project is one the kids are sure to love.
Supplies for DIY scented glue:
- Elmer’s school glue
- Kool-Aid packets (cherry, orange, lemonade, lime, blue raspberry lemonade, grape)
- Wooden skewers or popsicle sticks
- Small funnel
How to make DIY scented glue
There are two ways you can prep this DIY Scented Colored Glue.
The first way is to empty the Kool-Aid packet in to the glue bottle and either shake vigorously, and/or stir with a long wooden skewer until the colored drink mix & glue have mixed completely.
I found the best way to prep this project was to pour the entire bottle of glue out in to a small bowl. If your glue is thicker you can heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds. Add your Kool-Aid drink mix to the glue, and using a popsicle stick mix until you’ve achieved the desired color. Then using a small funnel pour the glue back in to the glue bottle, using the popsicle stick to push the glue through the funnel. It should just run back in slowly by itself.
Be sure to rinse the bowl and small funnel with warm water and dish soap between each color mixing.
That’s it! This DIY Scented Colored Glue works best on firm papers like cardstock, poster board, or construction paper. The scents of these glues are super fun and fruity, and the kids will love painting with them.
Note: This school glue is washable, but once the Kool-Aid is added it can stain clothing so be careful when creating beautiful artwork.
