Making Rainbows | Colour Mixing with Play Doh

I've recently been collaborating with Wooden Wonderland, an online toy store, and they have some beautiful products. This colour mixing learning board puzzle is perfect for preschoolers. The chunky wooden pieces are high quality and super smooth to the touch. It's handy when puzzles have a guide underneath to help the children and it makes this one much easier. Plus the names of the colours on each piece encourages early reading.

Colour Mixing Learning Board - Shop here (kindly gifted)

We were feeling inspired after playing with this puzzle, that we decided to do some colour mixing with play doh!

Miss M loves nothing more than to mix all the colours, and we all know how that ends up. That's why we usually only have one colour out at a time. So this activity was quite guided and structured and she responded really well (plus she loved having some mummy time and attention while Little Man was asleep).


This is how it went...

  • Starting with primary colours red, yellow and blue play doh, cut each colour into three pieces.
  • Then mix red + yellow, blue + red, yellow + blue (all the while predicting and discussing)
  • Using our Grimms wooden rainbow as a guide we placed our new + original colours in rainbow order and rolled each of them into snakes
  • Together we then created the rainbow and trimmed the ends with a knife.

Play doh is a favourite sensory material in our house... but there are some other fun ways to play with colour!





Which one of these activities would your little one like best?

  1. We are huge fans of chunky wooden puzzles here too, they're so much easier for the kids to pick up {plus you can use them to build towers}. I only ever get one colour of playdoh out at a time too because I can't stand when she mixes the colours and it all ends up brown! This looks like good fun though, provided she listens to me only mixes the right colours haha otherwise it might be a big brown mess.

    1. I hate when the play doh turns brown!! 3 years old was the ideal age to try a more structured activity...but I had to be right with her every step or it would have turned into a mess! If you decide to give it a go let me know :)
