This no mess color mixing activity was a great way to engage my kids in some color science. They got to select paint colors to mix together and observe the resulting colors. Plus, they got a lot of exercise with this activity as well!
Note: For more fun ideas to help kids learn their colors, see my Teaching Colors to Kids page.
Although we normally drink tap water, we recently took home a ton of left over bottled water after a party we attended.
After squeezing in their paint, the kids screwed the lids back on. My husband and I doubled checked that this had been done well before we let the kids move on to the next step, for reasons that should soon be quite apparent. 🙂
