We wanted to do the sink and float science lesson from Irresistible Ideas For Play Based Learning but today we went with learning about colors and mixing colors to make new colors.
We did this two ways, we used food coloring and water, then added the colors to it to make new colors and then we painted with them
It was fun for all of us and we did some finger painting too.
The children took turns adding food coloring to the water.
The water displayed pretty cool colors after we mixed them and then painted with them.
The boys enjoyed being able to squeeze the food coloring into the water, but before they did it they had to name the color they picked up and the color of the water, then they had to name the new color after they mixed it,
Here is our painting:
