Adding color in a new way to your drawing

Materials needed:  at least two bottles of glue
Tempera paint or food coloring
Coloring books pages or sturdy white paper
Crayons or markers

Find a page from a coloring book and color it in.  Then create colored glue by adding a few drops of paint or enough food coloring to get the color you desire.  Shake or stir well.  Create at least two different colors.  Now follow the lines of your picture with the different colored glues.  Let dry. 

Ready for more?  Create your own drawing or design with the colored glue on plain paper.  Make sure all the lines touch or even cross over.  Let dry.  Now you can color in your design.  This is a great activity to do with a partner.  Each of you can create a design for the other person to color!
