What You Will Need
Food decorating pen
Create 3D artworks and drawings that pop with readily available materials.
Gather the materials.
Using a spoon, mix 1 cup of flour with 1/4 tablespoon of salt and 1/2 cup of water.
Add a few drops of food colouring. Stir until the colouring is evenly spread out.
Pour the mixture into the sauce bottle and squeeze the mixture out. The mixture should flow smoothly and be neither too watery or too thick. Adjust the amount of flour or water to achieve the right consistency.
Repeat Steps 2 to 4 with different colours.
Let your child create drawings using the sauce bottles.
When they are done, leave the artwork aside to dry.
