I let him practice cutting the flowers from the stems.
Then he was able to fill the cups with fresh water from the teapot.
We did a little dyein' and a little mixin'.
Finally, we put them in the window to soak up the water! I will admit that after almost three weeks, they have plenty of colored spots but are not at all "dyed" like I expected. Truthfully, I can't get Zayd to inspect them enough to illustrate the change. I think I might try celery next time as I have heard good things about that "experiment".
And then we painted on paper towels with the dyed water!
