Tissue Paper and Food Coloring
This a fun, simple activity that I did not have high hopes for. I had expected the tissue paper to tear when I opened them, and I really was not counting on such lovely designs. It's a great project to do with children since it has that extra bonus of surprise when you unfold your tissue.
Fold your sheet of tissue paper the long way so that you have one long strip. Start at a short end and fold back and forth into triangles. Mix three small bowls with a slightly diluted food coloring or other thin water based paint. Dip each corner into a different color. Let dry. Unfold!
