Activity of the day: Crystal colour mixing
Take a look at our video here on colour mixing: https://youtu.be/seGD9vRbKLc
This is a great activity for all ages- all you need are plastic or glass containers, syringe, droppers or teaspoon, a few different food colours and water.
Dilute each colour until it looks sparkly (and is low risk for staining) then use the syringe, dropper or spoon to mix small amounts.
Little ones can experiment with making all sorts of colours; older ones can develop maths skills measuring volumes and working out ratios of each colour- in the past we’ve had people draw out ratio tables to make the best magic potion colours with this!
The colours look best on a sunny day outdoors- and that will minimise mess and cleanup too!
