Yesterday I had Little Missy and Little Froggy , so I decided to let them try to make a earth suncatcher for Earth Day. We made a simpler version , out of a coffee filter. I put some blue and green food coloring in small containers , they used a paint brush to dab the color on the filter , then I sprayed the filters with water to make the color run. We laid them on a paper napkin and let them dry.
They were so cute when I gave them a paint brush , they were looking at me like I had lost my mind , but they watched and took their brushes and dabbed at the filters just as I had shown them. They did well until I sprayed the filters and they saw the colors running , then they just had to put their little hands in it , so they got stained hands ( true little artist ), but for 17 month olds they did good. I really like the way they turned out , it's a wonderful tye-dye look , I punched holes and hung them with fishing line.
Hope everyone had a great Earth Day !
