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.
- 1 c
- 4 c
- drops of red food coloring
I like to heat just 2 cups of water with the sugar and stir until dissolved. Then add the remaining 2 cups of water (room temperature or cool) to help cool it quicker.
