JS loves painting way more than drawing and I thought that he would love to use it to learn about colour mixing.This time, we used a lot of paint so that the result would be obvious and looks attractive for JS to remember his primary and secondary colours.
However, I wanted him to practice using the pencil to draw specific objects so I incorporated the use of colour pencils in this activity.
First, he had to draw circles using container covers and colour pencils. Each set of circles comprised of a small one and a larger one, and both must be in different colours.
Next, he had to use a syringe to draw some paint and put them along the circles.
Lastly, he had to use a cotton bud to mix the colours together. He really enjoyed this part as he tried to guess the secondary colours.
I wanted him to remember the primary colours that made each of the secondary colours so we wrote them down.
