Eve was such a big helper when we made these brightly colored "butterflies." To make these colorful butterflies we started by adding a few drops of food coloring along with one tablespoon of white vinegar into a ziploc bag. We added a few handful of farfalle or bow-tie pasta into the bag, sealed it up and shook it until all of the liquid was absorbed into the pasta. We put our butterflies onto a cookie sheet to dry. Eve had a great time moving the pasta around inside of the bag with her hands and she did such a great job spreading the food coloring to make beautifully colored butterflies! We will be using our butterflies in a sensory bin that we plan on making next week (once our butterflies emerge from their chrysalids)! I'll be sure to post pictures once it is made.

Eve is just as beautiful as she can be. Those big eyes of her's are taking in all the happenings all around her. I've never seen such big sensational eyes!

Love the idea about making butterflies out of farfalle. I will never look at that shape in the same way again. Your family is so super amazing.

Please, tell our Baby Evey Pie that we love her so so so much,

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
