Queen Anne's Lace
Wednesday, August 18, 2010
Being in the mountains last weekend reminded me of how much I used to love the wild flower, Queens Anne's Lace. When I was a little girl, I would hop onto my bike with a banana seat and blue tires, and go in search of the flowers.
As much as I favor white flowers now, my younger version preferred colorful flowers, so Mom and Dad taught me a little trick with food coloring.
Over the weekend, we decided to try it again. I used basic blue and green food coloring - then red and blue were mixed to make purple. Simply follow the directions on the box. 1-2" of water was added to the glass.
This is a fun project for kids of all ages, even old ones like me. Let me know if you try it.
Just so you know, blue tires leave very cool blue skid marks on the road when you slam on brakes.
