More fun with eye droppers! I broke out the eye droppers and the food coloring again today for a little bit of color theory. H has been really interested in what colors you mix together to make other colors, so instead of answering the same question about what happens when you mix red and yellow together, I thought I’d let him experiment and find out himself. He really loved this activity and spend about an hour and half mixing colors together and excitedly announcing what colors he’d made.
The set up is simple, three bottles with food colored water in them, 4 small clear bowls for mixing new colors (one for each secondary colors and an extra one for experiments), a tiny spoon for mixing, a bucket for dumping out the mixed colors and a sponge for clean up. Oh and a white tray so that the true colors are easy to see.
