Glue Painting

To make painting projects that are shinier and glossier than usual, try mixing white glue into tempera paint (with a one-to-one ratio). Kids can help stir to make cups of several different colors. Then children can paint as usual! It takes longer to dry, but it dries shiny, making it a good choice for seasonal decorations.
