Corn Syrup Painting for Preschoolers

Pour a small amount of corn syrup into a (preferably) disposable bowl.

Then, drop a bit of food coloring or liquid watercolors in.

This gives your preschoolers some color options, or if they like, they can do a little mixing.
Let them paint the corn syrup on some thick-ish paper with a q-tip. When they're finished, lay it out to dry and let them marvel at the hard, colored, shiny spots on the paper!

And there you have it: a fun and easy preschool activity.
