The science of colors

Friday at 4pm (well I should say like 7 since I stayed at school a little late) my Spring Break began! Yay! I would say that I feel like its taken forever to get here, but that would be telling a story. In fact, I feel like this year has gone SUPER SUPER fast. I don't know to be excited that summer is almost here or sad that I'll be losing another set of kinder babies. Whichever I choose, I do know that I am super excited that I am on Spring Break! I'm even more excited to be spending time with my sister and mom. I feel like I don't see them as much as I should/could/would like to. So for the next few days its going to be family time, and I'm gonna TRY not to think too much about school-besides keeping updated on reading all of the fabulous blogs that I follow!

Yesterday was a great day! I went to church (something I don't do often enough) and enjoyed the sermon, then us girls (and little man) drove 30 minutes to eat at Golden Corral. When we got home we were talking about crayons in the crayon box and their different levels of "denseness." Anyways we decided to do a little color science experiment and went to the kitchen! We got 4 glasses of water and the three primary colors (yellow, red, and blue.) We mixed yellow and red, red and blue, blue and yellow. Then we poured a little bit of each of these into one cup to get black. It was fun! I think this is a little science experiment that any kid would like and would be an excellent way to have kids practice their predicting skills. You could EASILY do this activity with this kids or you could get out the paint and complete this awesome experiment that I found on Pinterest (and followed all the way back to The Hippie Housewife.)

  1. Hello! I found your blog from the K-2 Linky Party. I have done that experiment (color mixing) with my kids. We've also used a turkey baster to combine different types of juices. The kids really loved it. If you have time, stop by my blog. I have lots of ideas and freebies to offer.
