First gather a few things:a jar for each child
food coloring or water paints (four colors)
newspaper or plastic covering
spoons or popsicle sticks
Experiment with different jars of water and food coloring. What happens when you mix only two colors, like red and yellow? Blue and red? Yellow and blue? Make up your own combinations and see what colors you can make.
| Young children are like little scientists, continually experimenting and trying new combinations of things. Here's a way to give them a first-hand experience with science where they can see the changes in colors right before their very eyes.|
