We are continuing our color review and talking about rainbows this upcoming week! One tasty way that we practiced mixing colors is by using pudding. I purchased a box of pudding and separated a couple of scoopfuls into three bowls.
The kiddo was super excited and hungry for his snack that day, of course! I had Logan take a scoopful of two colors and plop them onto his plate. Next he got to swirl his spoon around to see what color magically appeared! My cat, Smudge, seemed impressed by the activity too!
Of course, sampling was necessary. (Please ignore the painter's tape, we just installed a new dining room window)!
I then washed the remainder of the pudding off the plate, so we could start again.
This activity was so much fun! We created all the secondary colors, and at the end we took all our left over pudding and mixed it together to see what color developed. Since Logan only had about three spoonfuls of pudding total, I was able to give him some yummy uncolored, left over pudding for the rest of his snack.
*We usually do not use food coloring that often in our foods, but I allow it from time to time. I know that there are people out there who do not use it, but there are also ways to dye food naturally if you would still like to try this activity. A simple Google search will yield lots of ideas on how to try to attempt this activity naturally!
