Create all the colors of the rainbow with this simple and fun color mixing activity.

How We Did It

Color Mixing

Before starting our color mixing activity, we laid down newspaper in our work area just in case of any spills. Next, we gathered the rest of our supplies together.

Color Mixing

We filled 4 clear plastic cups 3/4 of the way full of water and added a few drops of food coloring to each one. We then put a small amount of clear water in each section of the egg carton.

Color Mixing

We placed the eye droppers in the colored water and used them to dispense drops of each color into the clear water in the egg carton.

Color Mixing

It was really exciting to see what happened when we mixed different colors together.

Color Mixing

Pretty soon we a rainbow of colors unfolded in our egg cartons. When our egg cartons were full we just dumped out the water and started all over again!
