I decided since I am not a science buff we would do science on Fridays…..probably not every friday but as often as Tessa wants. And I picked Fridays because Daddy loves science and is home from work every 3rd friday.
Tessa has been asking lots of questions about mixing colours lately so I figured we would play around with some food colouring. She LOVED it. She sat mixing colours for over an hour and made me write most of them down for her to show Daddy her experiments. It was soo cool.
I wrote down what colours she was mixing and when she was done stirring them I asked her what colour it looked like.
After a while she was mixing all the colours together and they all turned out the same and she was not happy about it and wanted to come inside the house to colour.
Here is the list of our experiments:
Red + Yellow= Orange
Blue + Yellow= Green
Blue + Red= Purple….she LOVES purple!
I had bought a package of Neon food colouring and she wanted to use those as well.
Red + Neon Purple= Dark Purple
Yellow + Neon Purple= Light Purple
Neon Blue + Neon Purple= Light Purple
Blue + Neon Green= Greenish
Blue + Red= Purple…again
Purple + Orange= Pink….YAY! She also LOVES Pink!!!!
Yellow + Neon Green= Light Green
Red + Blue + Yellow= Grey
Blue + Purple + Yellow= Purpleish Grey
Yellow + Green + Purple= Brownish Pink
Blue + Purple + Yellow + Red= Purpleish
