So this is a trick my sister Nicole taught me, I thought I'd share. It is so much cheaper than buying a tiny jar of coloured sugar. It is super easy, fast, fun and you can do any colour. I use gel food colouring and I love it because you don't need very much to make vibrant colours and there are so many shades! (not a sponsered ad I just like it).So now for the instructions:
Put the amount of sugar you want to colour in a plastic bag with a seal.
Add a couple drops of colour
Mush it/shake it around. the colour will spread through the sugar in the bag
You might see dark coloured lumps - smush those into the sugar the lumps are just the dye.
If you trust the seal of the bag, it is a great thing for kids to help with - shaking up the sugar and watching the colour change.
