Add some food coloring to corn syrup and you have a very sweet glue mixture!
I took these photos at a local school I visited and noticed the blue bottle of corn syrup (made by adding food coloring).
The children painted a little fish bowl cut out with the blue corn syrup.
Then they added little construction paper fish on top of the corn syrup.
Next they sprinkled on a few little beans to make the gravel in the bottom of the fish tank.
Then set it aside to dry!  The blue corn syrup will dry like glue and stay blue!
It takes a little more time for the corn syrup to dry so be prepared to set the finished projects aside overnight.

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
