Experiment with colors

Today Joshus wanted to work withthe color tablets and test tubes.
Joshua first placed the individual test tubes into the test tube rack. Then he fills up each test tube with water. Next, Joshua places 1 color tablet in each test tube. As you can see in the next picture, the color tablets fizz into the water. This is a great way to learn colors and to also learn what happens when we combine certain colors.

The test tubes, the test tube rack and the color tablets, I bought from Steve Spangler Science -http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/product/1618

Steve Spangler science is a wonderful company. Steve was formally a science teacher. He left teaching science due to the obstacles the educational system puts on teachers. Out of his passion for teaching science to children ,he created a company that sells all sorts of cool, kid oriented science experiments. I have bought a lot from Steve Spangler Science and never have been disappointed!

In a previous post, Christian used a color mixing pitcher from Steve Spangler Science. Christian learned a great deal about combining colors with this pitcher.

In this photo you can see the color tablets at the bottom of the test tubes. We love Steve Spangler Science!!! http://http//www.stevespanglerscience.com/product/1156

Hi - I am a mommy blogger for Steve Spangler Science and I am so excited to see our experiments in action! I am starting up a blog that will feature Amazing Moms and I would like to feature you. Is it ok if I contact you again in a few weeks? One of my favorite color experiments to do with my kids is with clear spheres - http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/product/clear-spheres-kit
