Food Coloring Fun
An important part of kindergarten is for the kids to learn to complete tasks completely on their own. Gaining a sense of confidence and self-worth at this age is crucial. But they also like to get dirty and sticky. Here's a fun activity kindergarteners can make completely on their own from start to finish while learning about colors and dilution.
All they need to do is simply mix flour and water together to get a nice, pliable dough. It will “magically” turn into different colors when they add food coloring, one drop at a time.
Kids will thoroughly enjoy watching the color seem to magically appear out of a little drop of liquid and transform their dough balls into different colors. They will also learn how adding more dye makes a stronger color, and less dye makes a weaker color. When you experiment with the size of the dough and the amount of the color, they will learn a lesson in dilution and have a great time in the process.
