Let's Get Outside!
This week is dedicated to putting a
new spin on outdoor activities.
I wanted to put a new spin on water play,
And to have a learning moment as well.
I wanted to help Miss Sassy learn more about colors.
I started out with clean milk jugs
and added red, yellow and blue food coloring.
(I used 2-4 drops.)
I had her guess what colors would be made
by mixing red and yellow.
Although we've done secondary colors before, she still couldn't remember.
She added the food coloring and mixed the jug.
She loved seeing the colors bleed into the water.
When we finished we had a milk jug rainbow!
Now for playtime!
I gave her spoons and cups.
I wanted her to practice pouring "milk"
Without the stinky mess.
She had a great time experimenting with colors,
while she practiced pouring.
I had her choose one color to share with her brother.
He loved pouring it out and spilling it on the ground.
They (surprisingly) played with the milk jugs
for over an hour.
It's amazing how adding a little color really spiced things up!
