Colour Dropping

We love any activity that involves colour mixing! We also love activities that strengthen children's fine motor skills which will help them to become confident writers later on. We had some lovely plastic trays donated to our classroom, and we decided to fill them up with water. In a few spots on each tray, we coloured the water with the primary colours using blue, red, and yellow food colouring.

Using droppers and pipettes, the children were invited to mix the colours by dropping colours from one section of the tray to the other.

The results were stunning!
