We read Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni this week.  We decided to see what would happen if we mixed blue and yellow.  Would it turn green like the characters in the story?  First we put yellow colored water in one cup and blue colored water in another.  We left a 3rd cup in between those.  Then we placed one end of a strip of paper towel in the yellow water and the other end in the blue water.  We pushed the middle of the strip into the empty cup in the middle.  We all hypothesized that the strip would turn green when the colored water mixed together.

We then explored creating our own Little Blue and Little Yellow characters hug using paint.

Check out the pictures of our experiments.
