Magic Potions

What better day than a cold and blustery one to engage children in some water play indoors! I step up this 'magic potion' station for Caleb to explore.

I set up our portable water table and placed a long wooden board on top to act as a shelf which would enhance the play by adding a level to explore further. We used the three primary colours (food colouring in water), pipettes, and many clear plastic cups of various styles and sizes.

I encouraged Caleb to experiment with the colours and create his own 'potions' by mixing the primary colours together.

Manipulating the pipettes was also excellent fine motor practice, something that will help him with his future pencil grasp.

He created some amazing shades, which were placed on the wood shelf to be admired. It was interesting to discuss the various shades of colours with him.

  1. Where did you order your clear plastic pipettes from? I used to get them at Learning Resources.
