Use a coffee filter, bowls with saturated yellow and orange water, and a dropper.

  • Fill two small containers with 1/4 cup water each.  Add 6-8 drops of yellow food coloring to one container.  Add 4 drops of yellow and 4 drops of red to the other container to make orange.
  • Let the kids drip colored water slowly onto the coffee filter using a dropper (or a paint brush) until it is completely covered with colored water.
  • Let it dry.
  • Glue to white paper.
  • Then over the top glue a silhouette frame cut out of black paper. You can use this Camel Silhouette Art printable if you like or make your own design.  If you use ours, print it directly onto black construction paper or card stock. Then cut out only where indicated on the template.
