Mixing color water together!
We had fun with color mixing with Play-Doh when my son was in preschool. We also enjoyed this activity by mixing color water. I made the primary color and some other color water for him. We had a “chemistry cocktail mixologist set” we have never used, so I put those color water in their test tubes. These sets are made of glasses, so I needed to be careful with him. My son was super excited to do this activity with chemical lab tools because he feels like a scientist.
What We Used
- Paint (We used watercolor paints) Red, Blue, Yellow, etc.
- Brush for mixing water and paints
- Transparent cups or Jars (test tubes are optional)
How We Done
I highly recommend doing this activity on the bathroom sink or kitchen counter anywhere you don’t mind spills color water and don’t make stains.
It was a very messy activity, but he had a blast! It was a great activity to introduce how the color changes after mixing them. It was like chemistry or a magical potion to my son’s eyes.
