I have actually ordered powdered tempera paint to do a great project that
doesn't involve mixing it "normally". Make Bubble paint! Mix water, clear
liquid dish detergent and powdered tempera together, pour into small cups
(that aren't too deep) and have students blow bubbles in it with straws
until the bubbles reach above the cup and then have students place a piece
of paper on the bubbles and a wonderful bubble print is made. This is a
lot of fun to do with color mixing lessons, have separate cups of the
primary colors and have them combine on papers. Then of course you can
use the paper for collage, texture, or since you have a lot of blue, it
woiuld be perfect for an underwater world!

Hope this helps, and HAVE FUN!

This is the recipe for bubble paint.
(this is a small portion recipe, my apologies...the "vat-size" amounts are
at school...of course you can experiment with varying amounts anyway).

2 tsp. dish deter-clear
3 tbs. water
1/4 cup powdered tempera

ive never done it with REALLY old tempera, but i have with about 5 yr old.
i think it'll work.
