Science project: Food-dye Color Wheel
Every year about this time I start to really, REALLY crave color. Like clockwork, every January I start scheming about decorating with yellow or orange or something bright just to liven things up a bit. It's been a little better this year because my kitchen is south-facing and everything is white and light blue, so it feels nice and light and airy. That being said, I still think more color this time of year is great. It was such fun, and I couldn't believe how patient the kids were (ages 3 and 5), just staring at the colored water move slowly up the paper towels and mixing together. Here's what you need to make this fun color wheel: 6 clear cups 6 paper towels red food dye blue food dye yellow food dye Here's what you do to make the color wheel: 1) Fill 3 cups with water and mix in red food dye into one, blue food dye into the second and yellow food dye into the third. 3) fold the paper towels into about 1-inch strips and place each end into adjacent cups.
