As has become a tradition at our house we’ve been experimenting with a few early spring Snowdrops.  Popping them in food dye and waiting for the colour to travel up the stem to the petals.  Never gets old.  It also works on celery and apparently with carnations.

If you are after some more fun outdoor winter crafts you can find two more Frog, Goose & Bear tutorials on Kidspot for Fairy Garden Terrariums & Fizzy Chalkpaint.

There is now a Frog, Goose & Bear facebook page if you’d like to keep up to date with all things Frog, Goose & Bear.
Olympic Opening Ceremony tomorrow!!  Might even have to get into the spirit and get the kids hyped by printing up some these adorable Olympic Printables from Tinyme.

Enjoy your weekend!


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


At my house we tried this fun and easy science experiment.
As far as I know it only works on these particular flowers – snowdrops we always called them.
They are popping up all over the place at the moment. A sign that spring is almost here.

You just pop them into some water with some food coloring in it and overnight the color creeps up the stem and colors the petals.

Play along with Lou’s At My House this week.

Addition – This evening the petals are even more brilliantly colored and these photos (taken this morning) do not do them justice.
