I bought some cheese cloth from the dollar store.
We put it on a tray (we use boot trays for activities like this)
I set up some food colouring and small containers of water.
Use squeeze bottles or eye droppers if you’d prefer to water down your dye.

I bought this set at Michaels for $22 -minus 50% off with the coupon on the app.
