Colour Mixing Activity

Teaching colour mixing is always fun and exciting! I love this colour mixing activity, and it's always a hit with my students. You will need: diluted blue, red and yellow food colouring, matchsticks  newspaper, pipettes and a the colour mixing chart template which you will find here

Follow the dot pattern on the colour mixing sheet using the food colouring- make sure your students have one pipette per colour!

Mix the colours together with a toothpick, if you start from the yellow and go in an clockwise direction you won't need to change toothpicks.

Gently place the paper towel over the colour mixing sheet and watch the colours form!

I love the results, a real colour wheel with no fuss!
Keep smiling!
