This activity is a great little science one and also good for learning about colours/colour mixing.
You will need
- full fat milk (full fat seems to work better than trim, also warmer milk seems to work better than milk straight out of the fridge)
- food colouring- red, blue, yellow and green
- eye droppers
- dishwashing liquid (I use Palmolive, a teacher said she used the cheap pink stuff and it didn't work that well)
2. Put a drop of each food colouring into the saucer (top, bottom, left and right like this)
(I used way too much food colouring here, two or three drops is enough!)
3. Squirt a bit of dishwashing liquid into the middle of the saucer
The teacher in the 5 year old class I'm in had just done this with the class so it was a good memory jogger for me as I used to like doing this activity with my own classes -it's neat as an intro to print making but is also just a good art activity that can take a little while to do which is always good!!
- A4 paper
- chalk (any colour)
- sharp pencil
4. Open up the card and see how the picture has lifted from the right side and made a print onto the left side!
