Science project: Food-dye Color Wheel

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. So, the kids and I made this fun food-dye color wheel the other day. It was a great little science and art project. 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.
