For ages G has been interested in colour mixing ... asking about it and mixing paints (which of course end up sludge colour) ... so today I have her some food colouring now known as colour creators (diluted with water), a pipette and an ice cube tray and she enjoyed making different colours - mainly green and purple (Not brown!!!!). She decided she also wanted green as a 4th colour - so she mixed it and then poured it into a glass. After she had played for a while I then suggest some more structure and got her to write down how she had made her colours and showed her how to record her experiments in a table. E and I soon wanted to join in too!
