Mix Your Own Colors
Squeaks and Jessi are painting, but they need more colors. How will they make them? After you’ve watched the video, you’ll try this yourself!
Experiment With Color
Follow Squeaks and make your own rainbow of colors.
Fill an ice cube tray with water and add a few drops of red, blue, and yellow food coloring to three separate cubes. Give your child paint brushes to mix new colors in the other cubes. Extend this activity by adding a medicine dropper and paper towels.
Use your paint brushes to make new colors. Next, use a medicine dropper or paint brush to put drops of different colors on a paper towel. Watch them mix together!
