Here’s a spin on a recent color mixing activity Veronika enjoyed for Valentine’s Day. This time the bags were bigger and the whole thing was a lot squishier!
For set up, squirt paint into the corners of three gallon-sized zip-top bags. Each bag should contain a pair of primary colors: red + yellow, yellow + blue, and blue + red.
I next squirted a healthy dose of shaving cream into each bag between the two colors.
Seal the tops with duct tape for added security, or this could get messy!
Now it was just up to Veronika. She immediately loved squishing the bags between her palms.
It turns out they were also a blast to throw up in the air…
…or behind her back. Ta da!
Once she had thoroughly kneaded the bags, the colors started to mix together. It wasn’t as clear a “lesson” on primary and secondary colors as other sensory bags we’ve tried, but the visual effect was still lots of fun and quite pretty!
Here is the final, squished and much enjoyed result.
