We have shared quite a few kool-aid Science activities for kids, but today's is one of our favorites!
Color Mixing Kool-aid Science
Rosie LOVES Science, and it is no surprise as it is TONS of fun when approached in a playful way. This week we are sharing one of our favorite activities- color mixing with kool-aid eruptions. All you need for this activity is kool-aid packets in varying colors, baking soda, and vinegar.
To make our erupting color science we filled a tray with baking soda. Then we added two different kool-aid colors on top, using different colors for each concoction. Be sure to have the two colors overlap a little in the middle.
Once the baking soda and kool-aid were laid out the girls would pour vinegar onto the tray to see color mixing science right before their eyes
Red + blue mixed to make purple
I loved how the girls could see both colors separately, and also see them coming together to make the mixed color. I think this is a great way to teach the concept of color mixing to small children!
Red + Yellow mixed to make Orange
Blue + yellow mixed to make green
After we explored color mixing we made a kool-aid rainbow similar to the magic appearing rainbow we shared before.
This was the girls favorite kool-aid eruption of course!
The girls continued to mix, concoct, play and explore long after the color mixing lesson was over
Kool-aid eruptions really are a favorite here! This is a great go-to activity any day the kids are in need of some quick fun. It is frugal and kids never tire of the amazingly colorful and scented eruptions!
