To make the spice paint we poured washable white paint into four small bowls, then added paprika, turmeric, cardamom and cinnamon. Depending on what you have in the pantry – any ground spice might be worth trying!Sensory Spice Painting - process art for kids with an aromatic twist!

The more spice you add, the deeper the colour. My son was very keen  to be responsible for mixing all four varieties. Sensory Spice Painting - process art for kids with an aromatic twist!

 

The smell from the spices was fantastic! We both really enjoyed the specific smell of each spice when he used a particular paint. Sensory Spice Painting - process art for kids with an aromatic twist!

For some reason he decided to mix the cardamom with the turmeric, so I didn’t get a clear sample of each type. However, I just love the earthy tones of the different paints!Sensory Spice Painting - process art for kids with an aromatic twist!

 

Note: These spices can cause staining – especially the turmeric. Make sure your surface is protected if necessary. Oh and watch out for the kids’ clothes, too!
