Materials Bin (this one is for under the bed storage) Food colouring Watercolour paint Water Watercolour paper Empty soap pumps We always find a smock helpful too! Directions Don your smock. We first experimented with water before moving onto paint. We added a bit of food colouring (red, yellow and blue) and water to the pumps, exploring what secondary colours we could make. We then switched out our water for diluted watercolour paints (see the label on your product for ratios) and pumped away! Purpose Exploring primary and secondary colours. Building hand strength.
