I just tried to solve the powered tempera dilemma (i.e. how to get rid of
it) by using it to color sand. While it made really pretty colors, it's
really too dusty to be effective for sandpainting.

I got rid of a whole lot of the blue this week (while preparing to color the
sand) by fumbling the container and dumping most of the contents down my
pants leg and into/onto my left (white) shoe (see previous post about dress
code!!) I wouldn't recommend this technique for getting rid of it, however
;-)

An interesting activity at the elementary level (and perhaps with older
kids) is to put a small amount of the powder on a sheet of paper and use an
ice cube to paint. But aren't there some restrictions about using the
powdered stuff with kids due to the possible inhalation of the dust?
