Science Saturday: Paint

I cannot come up with much for science with this topic, but did think about making homemade paint. The Can Teach website has a bunch of "recipes" for different types of paint including poster paint face paint, and finger paint. Making the paints will reinforce measuring skills. You can also discuss whether the changes are physical changes or chemical change. The kids can hypothesize about color mixing and then experiment to see the results.
