Mixing colors is a great way to use science process skills. With just a little bit of food coloring and water, students can observe, experiment, draw conclusions, and record their findings.
Mix the primary colors in jars, then pour a small amount of each in separate frosting or butter tubs. Provide test tubes (Oriental Trading) or clear plastic containers and eye droppers for color mixing. Students will repeat the experiment again and again and again!
