Colored Popcorn Seeds

This is fun! What should we craft with these?

image

Here is what you need:

Popcorn Seeds
Food coloring
Rubbing alcohol
Ziplock baggies

Put popcorn seeds in a bag and added a few drops of food coloring to the bag. Then add about a tablespoon of the rubbing alcohol and the popcorn. Seal the bag and mix up tell all seed are covered and you have the color you want. I used cookie sheets with wax paper. Then put the popcorn on top to dry. We let the seeds dry outside for a few hours. This is a perfect craft because you can make a million more crafts with it 🙂

Someone suggested I pop it.

Little disappointed thought it would be colored. Still cute.

Sidewalk Paint

We are trying to enjoy the weather before it turns cold. Thought we would let them go out and paint today for craft time.

Here is what you need:

1 cup water
1 cup cornstarch
Food coloring

This is really simple to throw together.
I mixed the water and cornstarch then poured into a muffin tin. Then we added the food coloring to make fun colors. Craft time outside is the best. No mess to clean up after.

Tooth Fairy Money

Last night as my 5 year old laid in bed he pulled his first tooth out. We were excited and wanted to do something fun for him. I read once about leaving gold coins (dollar coins) but of course I don’t have any on hand.  What I did have, glitter!

So I sprayed the dollar with hair spray, sprinkled gittler, and sprayed it again! Ta-da! We had a fairy dusted dollar.
