Monty - the new colour!

Food colouring activities are amongst our favourite. Anything that is colourful is a success in Cruz's eyes. I saw this genius experiment over at All For Kids and thought I would adapt it slightly to suit our time frame as well as Cruz's age. In the experiment that you are taken to in the link above, an extra cup is added so that the colours mix in a cup, rather than on the paper towel itself.

While Cruz was asleep I set up a tray of food colouring, 2 small cups of water and paper towel linking each set of two cups together.

Cruz helped to add a little bit of water to each cup.

We then added a few drops of food colouring into the water. 

As soon as the food colouring was added, the separate colours started to make their way up the pieces of paper towel. This was amazing for Cruz to watch. 

He told me he had made magic. I told him he had.

Admittedly, we did make some pretty cool colour combinations and I was a little impressed myself.

This little experiment only took 2 minutes and Cruz was certainly not ready to stop playing or learning about colours, so I gave him some empty cups and food colouring to make his own colour combinations. He sat and watched his colours running up pieces of paper towel for well over half an hour. In the meantime telling me the made up names of all the colours he had made. Bet you didn't know there was a colour called Monty! Ha.

There's nothing like a bit of colour to brighten a day. 
See if you can invent a new colour too ;). I'd love to hear about them.
