Exploring Color

The primary colors are red, yellow, and blue....

 The secondary colors are green, orange, and purple....
 We explore combinations with colored cellophane and plastic color paddles...



Exploring color mixing with eye droppers of food coloring, paper towels, and "recipe" cards...
Making secondary colors from primary colors....

Making a rainbow around the circle...
Using the light board to explore color mixing...

I just love color mixing. I have a printable on my blog that does "shades of..." color mixing, for different shades of purple, green, and orange.

Fun! We own some of the food coloring mixing printables, but we don't use paper towels, so we've yet to try them out. A light board, now, is something that I really want!
