When Bubs and his friend, Ben, wanted to cook up some weed paint in my kitchen, my knee-jerk reaction was to say no. And I almost did. But then I remembered that I want to say yes when possible.
I'm so glad I did. It turned out to be a wonderful little homeschool project.
Here's their process...
1. Collect weeds that leave marks on the sidewalk when you rub them there. Mash up the pieces.
2. Boil in a small amount of water, stirring frequently.
3. Use a collander to separate the chunks from the paint.
Here's a sample. It turned out like watercolor paint. They made yellow out of dandelions, too which made me sneeze like a maniac...but still...
I'm glad I decided to swallow the 'no' and go for 'yes' instead.
