2 cups water
2 cups boiling water
3 tablespoons sugar
Brown Tempura Paint
together flour and cold water in a bowl. Add this mixture to the
boiling water and allow it to return to a boil. Remove from heat and
stir in the sugar. As the mixture cools it will thicken.
Cover a work area with lots of newspaper. Give each child a round inflated balloon to be their mold.
the children tear narrow strips of newspaper and dip the strips into
the paste, coating completely. Have them drape the strips around their
balloon, overlapping several layers. Let dry and paint. The children can
do another activity or game while they are drying and you can even turn
on a fan to hurry the process.
Then the coconuts are ready to be
painted (tempura paint works great). When the project is finished, the
children can play with them and even take them home.
They can also be used in party games like coconut bowling and the coconut pass.
