We've been talking a lot about colors over the weekend and today decided to do our first experiment. It was AWESOME!!! Catch a Rainbow was my inspiration. We followed it step by step.
Our supplies- food coloring, dish soap, milk, and a bowl! Simple!
After pouring the milk into the bowl, you put a few drops of the primary colors in the bowl and a few drops of dish detergent in the middle.
The dish detergent doesn't mix with the milk, instead it goes on top of the milk and pulls the colors together.
With a little "help" from me the colors really blended together forming the secondary colors. How awesome is that?!
To re-enforce the lesson, the girls had a coloring sheet. Just for fun AJ decided she'd test the theory... so she colored first with yellow, and then with blue, and yep, it turned GREEN!
