Berry Ink

People wrote lots of letters during the 1800s, but those letters would sometimes take very long time to arrive at their destinations. If the letters were intended for someone overseas, in perhaps a place like England or France, they might take months to arrive! Letters were also very time-consuming to create. People would need quills, ink, wax, signets, and paper. They would usually make these items, unlike today when we can purchase everything we need to write a letter in one store. This activity allows students to make their own berry ink to use with homemade or store bought quill or calligraphy pens.
