Science colour laboratory for children

Presenting our new Post-Series on "Science activities for Toddlers & Preschoolers!" Follow Novy Nest : Preschool & Daycare for more interesting posts on this series!

#ColourLaboratoryforkids: We call this the “colour laboratory” because the kids work like little chemists throughout the session: pouring and mixing and measuring with a variety of containers and instruments. Our colour laboratory is very easy to pull together, and it won’t cost you anything.

WHAT YOU NEED: Raid your bathroom, kitchen cupboards, and your recycle bin to collect interesting plastic containers and instruments such as: - dish soap - squeeze bottles (dish soap, shampoo, ketchup, body wash salad dressing), pump bottles (hand soap), spray bottles - syringes and Medicine Droppers, test tubes - ice cube trays, small plastic bowls and dishes whisks, measuring scoops - craft sticks - liquid watercolours or food colouring (*white bowls and ice cube trays are best for viewing the changes in water colour)

WHAT YOU DO: Fill each bottle up with warm water and a drop or two of dish soap. Then add a few drops of liquid water colours, and gave it a good shake.

LET THE FUN BEGIN! The kids now pour, fill, squeeze, scoop, transfer and dump the water from container to container, ooohing and aaaaahing as the colours change before their eyes. SKILLS: Motor skills, Physical strength, Colors Recognition
