We did some measuring and color mixing today for Art. I found this Liquid Measuring Kit from Lakeshore Learning.


We used it along with my color mixing cards to measure and mix new colors.

First we filled each container with it’s designated color using water and food coloring.

Next we poured, mixed and measured our way to secondary colors and ultimately, icky brown water.

I don’t think anyone cared though, well except me, its hard for me to step out of my box and *gasp* …mix! Oh the horror!


But, alas, it was a great math and art activity all rolled in to one. And let’s face it, anything involving water pouring is a hit over here!
