Making Homemade Ink

We are working through American Story 2 through WinterPromise. It is a great program that we are all enjoying. There are some great projects scheduled through it, and yesterday we decided to make homemade ink. It was great fun, and it worked!

  1. What a great idea! You should try other colors from other organic things. Let me know when you do.

  2. Sadie did this once (using different materials) and she loved it!
