Colour mixing on the light table

We love using our light table! It is a great tool for exploring art and science materials and concepts. Today we did an old favourite - mixing the primary colours of water using pipettes. I used a clear plastic tray and filled each section with water. Using food colouring I made one yellow, red, and blue section. 

The children were encouraged to mix and explore colour making by combining drops of different colours. 

Not only is it amazing to see what colours emerge, this is a great activity to strengthen fine motor control and hand-eye coordination.
