Colors of the Sun

Color is such an everyday phenomenon that we don’t usually give it a lot of thought. But colors can produce surprising effects, for example, in the way they mix together.


The science behind this offers several opportunities for exploration among young students. For this experiment, we created suns while combining colors.


Using red paint, yellow paint, and orange paint, we swirled around the different colors, seeing what would happen! This helped strengthened your little one’s analytical prediction making skills.
