I know you’ve all seen it. Water, food colouring, colour mixing, blah blah blah. But don’t underestimate the allure AND the benefits that this simple science experiment holds for children of all ages. The fine motor skills, the cause and effect, the predicting, the observing…oh the may wonders of colour and water!! So what are you waiting for??
LITTLE SCIENTIST…COLOUR MIXING
1. Food colouring
2. Jars or glasses, or see thru cups
3. Medicine droppers…I use these instead of turkey basters because it helps them master the prewriting “pencil grip”.
4. Empty clear egg cartons. The clear ones help the children see their mixed colours better.
