Color Mixing: Practical Life, Sensorial & Art

This Color Mixing activity is loved by every child I've prepared it for, this time my own!  It covers at least three areas, Practical Life (Physical Skills, Squeezing), Sensorial (Visual Discrimination, Color), and Art (Painting, silly!).  My oldest, 5.5 years old, became re-interested in the color boxes after this!

Primary Color Mixing.  After it had been used a bunch.  Time to refill :)

Pure watercolors make amazing color.

Mixing, and painting

"This is what I think our flower will look like."  Our bulb is about to bloom, she's full of guesses and wonder!  Since bedtime, it bloomed WHITE.  I can't wait to show them!

What fun! My kids love using the droppers as well, Im sure they will love the color mixing activity just as much when we get to it!

I love color mixing for St. Patrick's Day to fit with the rainbow theme. I just featured your post and photo in my Montessori-Inspired St. Patrick's Day Activities at http://livingmontessorinow.com/2012/03/05/montessori-monday-montessori-inspired-st-patricks-day-activities/
