I like to combine just 2 cups of the water with sugar and heat to dissolve, then I add the other 2 cups of room temperature water so it doesn't take so long to cool.
Kids especially love to help with this. If they're too young, I would just allow them to measure the water & sugar, add the food coloring, and let them pour the food into the feeder.
