We are busy with Easter crafts and activities and these plastic eggs came in handy when we wanted to do a simple science experiment: colour mixing.
We used two beads(the same two colours that we are mixing), to enhance the learning process. It makes a sound when you shake it, and after you mixed the colours, you could rinse the beads to remember which colours did you use to make this spesific colour.
We added drops of paint and a drop or two of water(it makes the mixing easier).
Then shake, shakitty, shake!
Look what colours me made by only using the three primary colours in different combinations! (Secondary colours)
Simple science, but so interesting! It is a very quick experiment, perfect for a child that are not fond of waiting for something to happen, or children that learn best while moving. And after mixing the colours, use it to paint: science and art activity combined!
