Colour mixing using kitchen towels

Make sure you follow my craft and activity boards on Pinterest for more ideas.

Early in the year YC and I were tie-dyeing Easter eggs (yes this is that old) and part of it included wrapping the eggs up in kitchen paper.  When we unwrapped them not only were the eggs beautifully decorated but so was the kitchen paper.  YC loved how it turned out and wanted to continue decorating kitchen paper in this way. Although she was doing this for the pure enjoyment, it struck me that this would make a wonderful activity to do on its own for young children to discover what happens when they mix colours.

You will need:

  • Kitchen towel
  • Pipettes/ droppers
  • Food colour
  • Cups
  • Water

In each cup mixing some food colouring with water.

Then let your little one experiment with dripping the colours onto the paper.


This is a wonderful way to explore what colours are created when mixed together; it also makes some very pretty works of art.
