Here is how we learned about color mixing:
Save six old milk jugs and fill them with water. Add a few drops of food coloring (primary colors) to three of them. In the other three, make the secondary colors- green orange & purple.
Then we set to work with our paints, creating our own colors. They had a blast! We even made up a little song (something my mom was always famous for) out of no tune in particular, to remember that we learned…”yellow and red make orange, yellow and blue make green…red and blue make p..p..p..purple!…”
