|Colour Mixing Learning Board - Shop here (kindly gifted)|
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!
