Tinti's colour experiment

What you will need

  • Tinti bathwater colours in blue, red and yellow
  • A bath tub or paddling pool in the garden with sufficient water
  • Empty, non-returnable plastic bottles or different sizes of transparent tumblers. Glass bottles can break so be careful and use plastic bottles instead for this game. And after the game, simply recycle the bottles and protect the environment.

Here's how to do it

The colours and different possibilities for mixing the colours are the focus in this experiment. First of all, fill all of the transparent containers and bottles with water. It is best to place half a tablet of each colour in each of the large plastic bottles and then mix them well with the water. Now the experiments can begin. Add a small splash of red water to a small splash of blue water: suddenly a new colour will appear and when you slowly stir it with your finger you will see blue and red veils of colour turn into a colour purple. And so it continues with the fun mixing experiments. What colour do you get from blue and yellow and from red and yellow? Try it out! Your friend Tops hopes that you will have lots of fun!

What children will learn from this experiment

Children are naturally inquisitive and creative. They explore their environment and investigate things around them. Impartiality, zest for action and curiosity are the essential motivational factors that parents can encourage systematically with different experiments. With the Tinti colour experiment, little ones learn to distinguish and experience colours around them and also learn how exciting it can be to mix different colours. The blue and red colours make purple and blue and yellow make green.


Tinti's volume experiment

What you will need

  • Tinti bathwater colours in blue, red and yellow
  • A bath tub or paddling pool in the garden with sufficient water
  • Empty containers in different sizes: whether its buckets, tumblers, bottles or small play moulds - the bigger the selection, the more exciting the experience.

Here's how to do it

The aim of this experiment is to develop a feeling for different sizes. How many times do the contents of a small tumbler fit into a large bucket? How many small play moulds can I fill with the contents of one bucket? And the more colourful the water, the more fun and pleasure the experiment gives.

What children will learn from this experiment

What is a large portion of ice cream or a small cup of tea? Children learn through play about dimensions and proportions in their day-to-day experiences. However, who doesn't know the saying: eat your plate empty so that there is better weather the next day. Why once again are your eyes bigger than your belly? In order to systematically encourage little ones to understand volume, children can learn quickly with Tinti's volume experiment as to what the terms "big" and "small" actually mean. This experiment with bright colourful Tinti bathwater is great fun.

 


Tinti's colouring experiment

What you will need

- Tinti bathwater colours in blue, red and yellow and Tinti painting soap

- A bathtub or paddling pool in the garden with sufficient water

- Different materials that are suitable for use in the bathtub: an old hand towel, aluminium foil from the kitchen, white coffee filter bags or white paper. When selecting a type of paper, ensure that it is strong so that it will not soak through immediately.

Here's how to do it

The colouring possibilities for the Tinti bathwater colours and painting soap are the focus in this experiment. Simply try out and see how coloured bathwater can stain a white hand towel or how the colours drip off the smooth surface of the aluminium foil. For example, paper becomes rippled when it comes into contact with water but its surface is great for absorbing the painting soap. A drop of colourful bathwater on a filter bag grows and grows and grows until almost all of the paper is moist. And if you then carefully dry the wet filter bags, you can turn them into colourful butterflies. Alternatively, you can use a paint brush or your finger - suddenly you will create wonderful finger paintings with the Tinti painting soap. Try it out! Your friend Tipsi hopes that you will have lots of fun!

What children will learn from this experiment

Colours turn our surroundings into a vibrant world of adventure. However, materials all react in a completely different way: Paper can be coloured in a different way to water or aluminium foil. Therefore, new images are created time and time again depending on the surface on which you are painting and experimenting. The different Tinti products leave their own mark whether you are using your finger, a paint brush or a watering can. But watch out: although Tinti will not discolour your skin or bathtub, textiles, such as hand towels or clothing fabrics, are not resistant to the colours.
