How to set up the activity

You do not need to use the table portion below the bin. You can place the bin on the floor.. or you can just use a table. The bin is not necessary.

For the first activity we put the worksheet / color cards into a dry erase pocket. We then set up the primary colors by using water and food coloring. The three primary colors are red, blue and yellow. 

Then you can use the worksheet and pipette to mix the colors.  Be careful and mix equal parts of each color.
