Fascinating Food Colouring

Duration: any

Age: baby, toddler

Skill for Bub: Hand/eye coordination, Just for fun, Mind Builder


A few drops of food colouring mixed into glasses of water create an entertaining live art show!

At this age, children are eager to explore the world around them. Since their attention spans aren’t long, it’s a good idea to have lots of short activities – like this one — up your sleeve.

At your baby’s eye level, line up several drinking glasses filled with water. Squeeze a few drops of food colouring into each container watch the colour dance in the glass. Tell your child the names of each colour as you drop it in.

Bonus! Dimming the lights and playing soft music during this activity is a great way to soothe cranky babies.
