Daily Art: Dyed Hearts

I think Jenna would have dyed paper hearts all day. After raiding a fair amount of our coffee filters, I finally had to tell her that we were out of hearts and would have to buy more at the store. Here’s how we made them:

First, I cut a bunch of hearts out of coffee filters.

Next, I prepared the dye using food coloring.

Then I let Jason and Jenna dip the hearts into the dye, just like making Easter Eggs.

And then Jenna added a extra drop of red on each one.

They had made over 60 hearts by the time I cut Jenna off. I think we’ll have a Valentine’s Day card-making activity soon!
