Experimenting With Primary Colors

Ms. Lillia introduces children to primary colors red, yellow and blue with the idea that they can be mixed to form new colors.

She also reviews the names for these colors in several languages and explains the importance experimentation to achieve a desired outcome.

To do this project at home you will need several sheets of white paper; three brushes; and red, yellow and blue nontoxic water based paint.

Younger children can simply experience how the colors change while older children might want to experiment with achieving and recreating a desired predictable outcome through more accurate portion control.

Appropriate for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade.
