Natural Dyes

Another idea is making natural dyes and dying things.... beets, spinach, carrots, grass, etc. I think most are somewhat water soluble and non-permanent although beets do stain really well. Boil the vegetables or whatever in water and the colour is extracted. For food: you could use food colouring or the dyes made above to colour food the wrong colour ie. red spagetti or blue spagetti or green eggs. *grin*
