Pre-Preppers: Color Collage

In our exploration of color, the Pre-Prepper class read the book Mouse Paint and did an activity to accompany it. We put two primary colors into a bag, taped it closed, and then used little “mice” to mix the two paints. Just like in the book, we found that two colors could be mixed to make a third, new color. We also did a few color matching games using color-coded trays and pompons.

This week, we continued our color studies with a look at things that are red, other than paint. To help associate the color red with both paint and objects, we did a collage of red things. Between activities, though, I introduced a new section to the art class: art boxes! They are cardboard boxes where my little friends can sit, color, and play while they wait their turn to paint. This simple set-up was met with great excitement. Everyone loves a good box—especially one you can draw on!
