Dropper Painting

My son loves to talk about colours and so one rainy day I tried to teach him about primary and secondary colours. Since Lucas is a very visual person, I decided to let him play with colours to see what would happen when they mix together.

I put three tubs of water in front of him that were coloured with red, green and blue food colouring.

He then was able to drop the coloured water onto a piece of paper to experiment with colours.

He had a great time making it "rain colours" and experimenting with how far he could lift the dropper and squirt the coloured water onto the paper.

The colours started to mix together after a while and Lucas was very excited to point out what was happening. This was a great way to spend some time together in the afternoon and also learn something at the same time!
