How to Dye Packing Peanuts for Crafts

use powdered tempera paint

We used our powdered tempera paint and mixed it with water in several spray bottles. Just a couple tablespoons plus a couple cups of water and shake well.

spray the packing peanuts to dye

Lay out packing peanuts on a covered surface. You may also want to make sure your child’s clothes are protected. Now spray the peanuts to saturate to get the color intensity you like.
