This week we have talked about colors and how mixing two colors together can make a different color. I have read the following books to the kids in order to help them understand the concept better (a review for Snootz).
We just used Primary Colors for finger painting and I told them they could experiment to see what colors they could make with those three colors.
Three blobs of paint on the paper.
And the experimenting begins. This was the girls first time doing real fingerpainting and they really enjoyed it.
They did a great job keeping the paint on the paper. Of course it wasn't perfect but overall they did well and more importantly they recognized that they were making new colors on their papers.
I love this painting that Snootz did. You can't really tell here but it ended up looking like a big heart with a handprint right in the top middle of it.
I have some other color experiments planned with the kids and we'll see how those go!!
