Preppers: Mix and Match

For the past two weeks, the Prepper class has been looking at how colors can be mixed to create new colors. For green, I just let them do a full page of mix-as-you-may, with blue and yellow paints at their disposal. This individual discovery was very exciting, as their previously yellow paint suddenly turned green! For the purple mix, we made snowflakes with watercolors, using red and blue paint. This project took a little longer, since we had to wait for the snowflakes to dry before we saw the colors change, but their enthusiasm wasn’t dulled at all from the wait. It just meant they got to get excited all over again on day two! While waiting for a turn to paint, we also had Play-Doh and stencils out for everyone to enjoy. The alphabet stencil was by far the most popular one on the table.
