Paper Towel Art


Materials

  • Paper towel
  • Bowls of diluted food coloring or strong watercolors

Directions

  1. Have your child fold a piece of paper towel into a fairly small packet.
  2. Have her dip each corner of the packet into a bowl of colored dye (diluted food coloring or strong watercolors).
  3. Use a different color for each corner.
  4. Unfold the paper towel and hang to dry.
  5. You can use various types of paper; the more absorbent the paper, the faster the dye will spread.
  6. Dipped rice paper makes a nice gift wrap, but it is fairly expensive.
