While not nearly as impressive, or miraculous as when Jesus turned water to whine, my kiddos thought this was pretty neat indeed.
I got the idea from pinterest during one of my “look around the internet because I am so totally procrastinating from folding laundry” moments. It is actually very simple – Take all those old markers that you would normally throw out and save them until you have quite a large collection. At that point, sort them by colour and place them into jars with their tip down and add some water to the jars.
We let them sit for a few days and then put the liquids in old crayola paint containers. They made great water colour paints. I love the pastel colours they created… but not nearly as much as I love this adorable kitty cat who just loves to paint!
