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.
