This has been an absolute favourite in our house. An experiment done not just once but repeatedly.
- Flat glass bowl
- Food colouring
- Cotton earbud
- Dishwashing liquid
Pour a little milk to the bowl and add some drops of food colouring in different spots in the bowl. Add a little dishwashing liquid and play using the cotton earbud. The soap reacts with the fat in the milk and the movement makes the colours swirl and mix. It is a great way to learn colours. Use different bowls to learn how certain colours create a different colour when mixed. Using blue and yellow in one bowl can give you green, while red and blue can give you purple.
I print mine in A3 and then laminate it. It is an excellent way to keep kids busy when travelling and lamination protects it.
To learn colours in Afrikaans I showed my little one the following video and as he loves dinosaurs it was a winner.
Hope you have just as much fun as we do!
