I absolutely love how quickly the basil seeds expand ever so slightly and absorb color! Our plan, this time was to freeze them! It has been really really hot here and I'm always looking for something to cool these guys off!
We all worked together to add the water and the color and spoon them into the molds. Once frozen which only took a couple of hours we popped them out - they looked awesome! Luke abandoned us at this point and Shane has fun until the little seeds were stuck all over him. You can see by the expression on his face he had had enough. A cool sensory experience. If trying at home, cover your surfaces with newspaper. The seeds stick to everything including your skin 😊😊!
I love seeing Luke's expression as he's witnessing the color change.
A shot right after the color was incorporated and before we froze. We colored the seeds red and blue. Shane combined them and this was what we saw.
I love this shot - pure sensory bliss which quickly turned!
