Mixing Colors IdeasHere are a few color activities that I do with my kids during our "All About Colors" week.
This is a fun way to help children learn how colors are made by mixing primary colors. I teach my kids the following song, unfortunately I don't remember the name of the tune.
Red and yellow makes orange
Yellow and Blue makes green
Blue and red makes purple
I love mixing colors!
In the morning we always sign-in and do a quiet morning activity. This is an example from this week that promotes fine-motor skills, as well as color recognition. I made this worksheet on word.
I decided to do this wonderful art/science idea that I found on pinterest.
We did a partner art activity and explored the concept of primary colors. They really enjoyed picking a friend and getting messy.
On another day we read mouse paint, and did this. I must admit my kids were more entertained with the youtube mouse paint readout loud. This version of mouse paint they enjoyed; here is the youtube link: Mouse Paint
This was another fun way to reinforce primary colors, that was very effective. You can find the worksheet at the link below.
