Here I am sharing a very simple activity for kids of all ages. The color mixing challenge is what we named it.
A ice tray/ muffin tin
Tempera colors( we buy ours from ELC)
A color wheel / color mixing chart ( optional)
A cleaning cloth and art smock
Add small amount of color in the ice tray - Red, Blue, Yellow, black and White. Ask your child to make as many new colors by mixing any 2 or sometimes 3 colors together. The Challenge is to make maximum colors. Let the child interpret the challenge her own way.
The first time I gave this challenge to my daughter. She came up with 5 colors- pale yellow( yellow+ white), Purple ( red+ blue), Orange( Red + yellow) Mustard ( more yellow and less red) and Black( mixing all of them).
I have now challenged her to make more than five next time.

China grass is an alternative to gelatin. It doesnt need refrigration for setting. We made these fun sensory bags for window or light table play. On the light table it also can be used for fun color mixing. Just boil 2cups water and add china grass till it dissolves. then add it to different containers and add few drops of food color. Let it cool for 10-15 mins, and its ready for play. This is totally tasteless and edible. So it is fit for younger children too. Now add the jelly into ziplock bags and seal the top with clear tape. We added some Q-tips for writing practice.
