Little Scientists, one of the monthly programs with momstown Mississauga, is a fun and interactive way to get your child interested in science! The program is hosted monthly at Whole Foods Square One in their community kitchen.
Each month we perform simple, toddler-friendly experiments that showcase science principles in age appropriate experiments. Most recently, our little ones had a chance to learn about colours, and learned the principals about making colours through experiments with primary colours!
First, the kids were asked about their favourite colours, and then they listed as many colours as they could think of. Using our primary colours, yellow, blue and red, we tried to make as many new colours as possible.
The kids each had 2 cups of water, and with their mama’s help, they took turns stirring food colouring into each cup. They then guessed what colour they thought they would make if they mixed the 2 colours together. They had a lot of fun pouring one colour into the other and discovering the new colour that they made! Red and yellow made orange, blue and yellow made green, and red and blue made purple. Purple seemed to be the favourite of the day!
The kids then were able to each document their findings by colouring in a sheet to show the results of each combination. Our Little Scientists program is not only fun for little ones, but it helps stimulate their senses and exercise their thinking skills.
Just one of the many programs we run monthly at momstown Mississauga and is included in your yearly program pass! We hope to see you next time!
