Last Saturday’s workshop was all about mixing colors…with your eyes. One of the first things kids learn is English are colors, but not everyone knows which primary colors to mix together to make second secondary colors. This is how we did it:
First, we reviewed the colors just to make sure everyone knows them. Then we went over what supplies we’d use to make our project (in this case, paint, paint brushes, circles (drawn before hand), glue and bottle caps). Everyone painted 2 primary colors into each of the circles in alternating patterns (red/blue, yellow/red and blue/yellow).Next, the kids cut out the circles.
They glued plastic bottle caps (which we had already punched a hole into with an awl) onto the backside of the circles (we punched a hole into the center of the circle to align with the hole in the bottle cap) and pushed a shish kabob stick through the hole.
