Rainbows can walk? You bet they can when water is involved! Brix is ready to show you how to make a walking water rainbow.

Supplies Needed:

• 6 glasses or jars
• Paper towels
• Food dye or liquid water colors (red, yellow and blue)

Instructions:
1. Rip off six sheets of paper towel and fold each sheet in thirds, lengthwise. Make sure you have 6 sheets total.
2. Line up your glasses and fill 3 of them halfway with water. Leave 3 of the glasses empty.
3. Take the red food dye and add some into a glass of the water. The darker the red color the better. Do the same with the yellow dye. And lastly, the blue dye.
4. Move the glasses into a circle, alternating a color with an empty glass.
5. Place one end of the paper towel in the color and the other end in an empty glass.
6. Wait about 20 minutes and your rainbow is complete!
