Today we were experimenting with mixing colours. We chose an activity using ice cubes and dropping food colouring. In pairs the children gently dropped their chosen primary colour onto ice and slowly mixed the colours together. The children really enjoyed seeing the colours mix and a ‘new’ colour appear. At circle time we hunted for secondary colours green, purple and orange.
One thought on “Ice Cubes and Colour Mixing”
What a fantastic activity! My daughter came home talking about it and she wanted to make ice so we talked about how we could make it at home and how ice is frozen water.
