Hi, about mixing the tempera with liquid starch and make
fingerpaint? How about painting with toes...toepaint....aaah, mushy, gooey.
Running on a big sheet with little bare feet ala Pollack.

How 'bout "painting" with trowels or palette knives on tagboard or canvas
or heavy paper. That takes ALOT of tempera.

Maybe "drop" painting with eyedroppers?

Mix it with dry detergent (from a box) or Comet to make "heavy" paint and
build up layers on a surface. Sorta like a relief paint.

Donate it to a needy school that really could use it!
