I’m rewinding today with Multiple Mum at And then there were Four.  Each week there is a different theme and it is a chance to link up your old posts to see the light of day again.  This week we are looking back to what we were up to a year ago…  

This time last year, we were experimenting with food dye* and spring bulbs!  

For details re the experiment, see last years post here.  Since then, thanks to some helpful bloggy comments we’ve tried the same trick with celery as you can see in these photos!

How cool does it look as it goes up the stem?
Red up one side, blue up the other until it combines to purple at the top!

You can rewind over here too.
Or check out some more ways to entertain your kids here.

* if you’re a regular here, you’ll know that I am quite partial to food dye used in mediums other than food!  Particularly in baths

    Great timing for me to read this post.<br /><br />Just yesterday I was thinking about trying the food dying with the kids.<br /><br />I am about to head to the shops so will grab some celery and give it a whirl this afternoon.

    That IS cool! It&#39;s quite fun to see what you were doing this time last year. I was doing a month of themes, and this one fell on the silly things I do! You were obviously doing much more scientifc things than I!<br /><br />xx
