To eliminate the use of plastic and paper bags, I use canvas bags for grocery shopping and my weekly trip to the farmers market in the summertime. My plain jane cream-colored bags were begging for a hip new look so with a few markers, rubbing alcohol, a glass, a rubber band and an eyedropper... I have a bag worthy of its contents. Can you envision the bag bulging with in-season farmers' market products... a wooden pint box of raspberries, a bundle of asparagus spears, a jar of rhubarb strawberry jam and a loaf of homemade bread to slather it on, the first purple snap beans and peas of the season, lemon balm to flavor herbal tea, and some cutting garden flowers standing proudly upright tucked to one side? Markers come in so many summery colors with fun names... kiwi, dandelion, marigold, pink lemonade, and boysenberry. Wouldn't that be a dream job... to brainstorm marker names? The directions include a "movement of molecules, given the right solvent," science lesson tied in with the project. To tie it in with a learning objective and create a cute product... how fun is that?! A couple tips: Eyedroppers can be found at your local drug store in the eye care section by the contact lens solutions. Do the project outdoors or with the breeze blowing in through open windows. Permanent markers have a strong stench.
