Making Quill Pens…Colonial Christmas Unit Study

Today we made quill pens with blueberry ink. We wrote on parchment paper that we made last week. The kids loved doing this! We bought feathers at the craft store, and then strained blueberries to get the juice. We combined the juice with 1 tsp vinegar and 1 tsp. salt. Then we dipped our feathers and started writing. They had so much fun. Tomorrow we are making horn books!
