Water, Color, Containers, and LIGHT!
We did this months and months ago and I totally forgot to do a post on it. This is an activity I did in my classroom a lot, but not with a light panel - we would do it on top of white paper so the true colors would show. My son loves to mix and pour so I knew it would be a huge hit. Its a great activity to talk about colors, work on motor skills, introduce words such as pour, stir, mix, dropper, etc, and even talk about the principles of water.
All you need are containers - different sizes and shapes, food coloring, droppers, and water. We refilled these at least 15 times so that he could do it again. :)
