Paper Towel Dying

Paper Towel Dying

These towels can be used for wrapping little gifts, making card's or adding to weaving boards and much much more.

What you need

Shallow Bowls
Food Color
Paper towel


Place your shallow bowls onto a covered surface and fill each bowl with 1/4 cup of water. Add your food coloring to each bowl. The more colors you have the more fun it will be.

Have the kids take one square of paper towel and fold it up into quarters.

Then have them dip the corners into a different color. They can also fold it again and double dip another angle.

Open up the paper towel for a lovely painted effect. Hang it up to dry.

All done!
