Colors of the Rainbow
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet — create a rainbow of colors out of the three primaries (and white)! Help your child to learn about the science of colour through this thoroughly experimental art activity. Make a special colour wheel that displays the primary and secondary colors. Encourage your child to be a mini-scientist and hypothesize what will happen when he mixes red and yellow. Set up a special colour mixing exploration and discover how two colors can mix together to form an entirely new appearing hue.
The colour Blending Rainbow activity can be expanded into other learning areas (in addition to art and science). practise the basic maths skill of counting with your child as he numbers each row of his especially unique rainbow.
