Not many art projects can beat dyeing Easter eggs, but once the fun is over that leftover dye can still be put to good use...
I set Abe up with a piece of watercolor paper, some leftover dye, and a bunch of different utensils to work with. He loved using the old medicine droppers to squirt color on the paper!
Here's his finished masterpiece before I picked it up and all the colors ran together. Ugh. Sometimes it helps to plan ahead... His highchair has a removable tray that snaps onto this one. Next time I'll have to remember to use that so I can pop it off and move his artwork without messing everything up!
Once the dye was dry, I cut out egg shapes from some of the sections that weren't completely ruined and made an Easter egg mobile. Abe loves eggs so these may stay up well beyond Easter!
