STEAM Challenge Color Mixing Activity Cards


Color mixing – something so popular among children. Now you can direct them in mixing certain colors so that they will end up with a color other than a muddy brown. 😉

Each of the nine cards will give instructions on mixing two colors together which will result in either a secondary or tertiary color.


  • Print out the color mixing cards
  • Cut them in half, down the middle, so that the color cards are all individual
  • Laminate each of the nine cards
  • Following the instructions on each card, drop equal amounts of colored water into a beaker to discover your new color
  • You can use food color or liquid watercolors to color your water
  • Hint: the answer to each card is the border color

What to do with the colored water?

  • Use the colored water to color vinegar and make volcanoes
  • Paint with it
  • Mix it all together and see what color it makes

Money and time saving tip:

We signed up for the HP Instant Ink program over a year ago and absolutely love it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them.

We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty about printing out new printables and playdough mats each day. If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you 1 free month.

You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices).

Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.

To round the corners as we did, we recommend this corner punch. It was such a great investment and is used all the time! It works great on everything from printer paper and cardstock to laminated paper. It really takes the printables to the next level! Also, it’s nice not to have to worry about getting poked with those sharp corners.
