|Beautiful Color Painting. We are going to mount these on some scrap matting.|
|Some like just one color. Just one. And they must cover the entire surface.|
|Some like to mix all the colors together. We did just read a story about color mixing...so I guess I understand. :)|
|This one has a story: A is going to the bank with his Dad.|
|Gluing on color plates|
A week of colorful exploration. Collage and painting is a favorite of preschoolers, so that is just what we did.
Here is a list of fun activities we did as well:
- Favorite Color Graphing
- Separating Light/Dark colors (used from old paint sample cards)
- Find the Color: 6 colored papers laid out on the table. At the sound of "Go", children run frantically through out the room looking for one small object that corresponds to a color. After they have each found their object, we graph how many objects made it on each paper. After 6 or so rounds, we add up and find out which color was found the most. Such a simple game. And probably a game that will be played many, many times.
- Magic Colors: On each hand paint two primary colors (red, yellow, blue), print on a piece of paper. Then children will rub their hands together, and ABRACADABRA-a new color! The children were very fascinated by this project. ;)
