Rainbow Walking Water

Now families,

It doesn’t take a lot of money to have a lot of fun. Some of the best tunes are makeshift creations that are meant to entertain. Surely, this colorful creation lives up to its hype.


  • food coloring

  • Paper towels

  • Water

  • Clear jars (6)

This is also a great experiment because children can help right from the get go. Steps:

  1. fill 3 jars with 3/4 of water

  2. Add red, blue, and yellow to the jars. (Different food coloring in each jar)

  3. Put all 6 jars in a circle. Alternate- each jar filled with water is next to an empty jar

  4. Make a guess! What will happen next? How do they know?

  5. Take six paper towels. Fold each paper towel and a half and then in half again so you have created a long strip. Then dip each paper towels drip into one of the colors and the connecting empty jar.

  6. Observe!!! Watch as a rainbow is created!

Great job. How close were the predictions this time. We may not be able to taste the rainbow here, but we still brought home a little sunshine! Sincerely, A Tip Filled Teacher
