STEM Color Mixing Activity
A fun, engaging, hands-on way to combine color mixing, sensory play, motor skills and more!
Sensory tray or bowl
Sponges, cups, scoops, etc
Add 3-5 squirts of washable paint into the sensory tray or bowl.
Fill with water & mix until the paint is incorporated.
Add sponges, cups, scoops etc.
This works on SO many skills! While they splash around in the water, they are activating their senses & exploring temperature, colors & measurements. As they begin to mix the different colors together, they are getting a first hand look at how varied colors are created. The pouring & splashing & squeezing is an amazing way to strengthen fine motor skills. Did I mention it is FUN?!?!
