Today we did a really fun activity and I wanted to teach you how to do it too. Art is my favorite thing to do, especially mixing colors when I paint! The primary colors are yellow, red and blue. All the other colors can be made with just those three colors!
To try this out, you just need a few things:
1. Ziploc bag (sandwich size)
2. Red, Yellow & Blue paint
3. Shaving cream
Step 1: Put two colors of paint in the bag. You don’t need too much paint. Maybe the size of a chocolate chip for each color. I chose red and blue.
Step 2: Add the shaving cream. Fill the bag 1/3 full.
Step 3: Squeeze out the air as much as you can, then close the bag TIGHT!
Step 4: Squeeze the bag to mix the colors into the shaving cream.
Step 5: Watch the colors mix together to make a new color! Red and blue make purple! What happens when you mix red and yellow? Or Yellow and blue?
