Color Mixing Experiment

Mouse PaintAnother wonderful book for preschoolers about exploring colors and color combinations is Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh.  This simple experiment is a fun follow-up to the book.
You need:
Six clear containers
Red, yellow, and blue food coloring
Eye dropper

1)  Mix food coloring and water for each primary color.

2)  Using an eye dropper, transfer color from one container to another.  Mix to make secondary colors.

Afterwards, I let the girls experiment and see what colors they could make!

What a FUN way to learn about primary and secondary colors! Great idea for an art class -- I'll have to keep this in mind!
