The children at Towey Rec. Center worked with some edible materials for this week’s art activity. We started with using marshmallows as stamps. With a little green paint we stamped some ‘shamrocks’, or 3 & 4 leaf clovers. The young artists then decided to use a bit of yellow paint to stamp some gold coins creating a big pot of gold! Keeping with the St. Patrick’s Day theme, we drew big shamrocks on paper with glue, and sprinkled salt everywhere the glue was. After they dried a little, we used a watery paint mixture to add some color to our art. Just a dab of the paint and the color spread through the salt creating beautiful crystalized clovers.
