Mixing and Making Colors



  • Fill 2 cups with water, add blue dye to one cup and yellow dye to the other.
  • Put an empty cup in between them.
  • Roll 2 paper towels.
  • Place the end of one towel into the blue dye and one end of the other towel in the yellow dye.
  • Bend both the towels and put the loose ends into the empty cup and watch the magic happen.
  • As the coloured water is absorbed in the towel it makes its way up and then into the empty cup.
  •   The blue and yellow food dyes combine making green water.

Use other primary colors to make secondary colors and so on!
