There's no need to buy harsh, expensive dyes for your family's crafts! This enjoyable activity teaches you and you child to make an all-natural, deep, yellow-brown dye, using just walnut shells and water. Combine this project with your child's studies on pioneers or Native Americans, and she'll be able to do some hands-on learning in the style of the times she's exploring. This remarkable dye has been used throughout history—and almost everywhere walnuts grow—to complement various textiles, art, and woodworking projects.
