Paper Towel Roses


  • Paper towels
  • Liquid watercolours
  • Paintbrushes or medicine droppers
  • Ice cube tray
  • Scissors
  • Transparent tape
  • Plastic tablecloth to protect your table


Dyeing your paper towels

1. Pour your liquid water colours in an ice cube tray. Dilute the colours slightly with water slightly and test the colours on a piece of paper towel.
2. Cut your paper towels in half.  You’ll need one half (which you will cut in 2) for each rose.
3. Using medicine droppers or paintbrushes, have the kids drip two complimentary colours all over their paper towel until it’s completely covered.
4. Dry your paper towels thoroughly (be sure to protect the surface you’re drying them on).
