I was just going through my pictures and realized we’ve done a few color-mixing lessons with paint in the last few days that I haven’t posted about.
M loves to run his cars through paint “puddles” and make tracks. This is what he asks for most often when it’s art time. I don’t always post about it, because there’s only so much you can say about running cars through paint. ;)
Anyway, last week he asked for red and yellow paint and discovered that they made orange (I totally let him make the discovery and tell me about it).
Yesterday he asked for blue and yellow:After he painted for a while, I asked him what color they made when mixed together. Here he is staring at his hand, trying to figure out exactly what that color was: He wasn’t sure but finally said “dark green”. Apparently royal blue and yellow do make a brownish-green color.
And here he is seconds before being thrown into the bathtub, after he discovered (once again) that all the colors mixed together make “mud”: And, in case you are wondering, running cars through “mud” is the most fun of all. :)
Have a beautiful day! :)
