Ice cube trays
Have the children guess what colors to mix to make green. If they do not know tell them yellow and blue make green. Then put water in the ice cube tray and drop a few drops of different colors of the food coloring in the container. Then have the students pick use the eyedropper to put a few drops of yellow and then in the same spot a few drops of blue and then let them watch as the colors change into green!
Continue doing this until they have made several colors. If possible have a color chart out that tells what colors to mix to get other colors. SOme examples are:
Red and yellow = orange
red and blue = purple
Enjoy this fun science project!!
Objectives: To help children learn to use small muscle skills by using the eyedropper. To help students realize how to mix colors to make other colors. To let children realize that water spreads out on a piece of towel or paper.
