Mix Color for Rainbow Stew!
Kids love to cook even if the final product isn’t edible! Cooking with your child can provide a wonderful opportunity to explore physical science concepts. After all, these culinary experiences allow your child to make observations about ingredients before and after cooking and to make predictions about the final product. In this activity, your kindergarten kid will conduct a color mixing experiment to discover which primary colors are mixed to make the secondary colors. One warning: this concoction doesn’t taste that great … but it definitely looks cool anyway!
