You know how I LOVE my traditions...well, I wanted Brody to actually be able to participate and I finally found a way he could! As long as the weather cooperates - it's totally worth letting them get dirty!
I put ~1T of white vinegar in a container...then filled it with water, and put about 15 drops of food coloring.
Then I brought B outside and let him get to work! His hands only stayed stained for a couple hours...but I washed him up quickly after...
