Karo Syrup Apples Art Idea

My kids love painting with Karo syrup. I’m sure it’s because they get to eat the “paint.”


Karo syrup (this stuff is clear)

Food coloring (red, green, or yellow for apple colors)

Apple blackline (I found this one in an ABC coloring book and copied it onto cardstock.)

1. Pour a little bit of Karo syrup onto the paper.

2. Put a few drops of food coloring on the Karo syrup. I like to let my kids choose what color apple they want.

3. Let your children paint the apple with their fingers. The best part is letting them LICK as they paint!

4. Allow to dry overnight before hanging up (depending on how thick they painted, sometimes more time is needed).


  1. Great idea! We are studying the letter A this week so it fits perfectly into my plans! Thanks!
