A Rainbow Blizzard
We were tired of winter weather,
so cold and wet and gray.
We talked to Winter's Wizard.
Here is what we do with the project:
gloves (so your hands don't end up tie-dyed)
paper plates for the snowflakes to dry on
optional - spray bottle filled with water
I have the students fold and cut their coffee filter snowflakes. While still folded, a parent volunteer drops food coloring onto the snowflakes. I let my students choose 2 colors. If the food coloring isn't mixing well or isn't spreading quickly, I have the parent volunteer spray a little bit of water onto the filter.
