How we did it:

Materials List

  1. egg carton
  2. food coloring
  3. water (in cups)
  4. eye droppers
  5. newspaper
  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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!
