Color Theory Water Play

Now that it's hot outside we are always looking for fun ways to cool off. Exploring color theory through water play is a warm weather staple around here.

Supplies & Instructions

Jars (6 per setup)

Liquid watercolors or food coloring (red, yellow, and blue)

Bin (1 per setup)

Droppers or Twisty droppers

Fill three jars with water and then add liquid watercolors or food color so that you have a red, yellow, and blue colored jar. Set the three colored jars along with three empty jars in the bin. Using the droppers mix colors to explore color theory.

Preschool Prompts

Point out the three primary colors red, yellow, and blue. What color will you make by mixing blue and yellow? Point out that green is a secondary color because it takes two colors to make that color. What other colors can you make? How did you make this new color?
