Ziploc bags with tempera paint. We practiced color mixing, fine motor skills, sensory exploration, and letter writing. It felt like getting messy... without the mess! Again, just a picture no link but so worth sharing this GREAT idea.
WORTH IT: This was a really fun activity to do with the kids. I put them in groups of three and each kid/group did a different color (results were orange, green, and purple). I didn't have long paper so we used regular sized card stock. It worked with their little hands. Color activities- paint both hands different colors, then rub together to make new handprints!
Classroom Conspiracy: Colors - Primary to Secondary
About this School Project (Color Wheel Butterflies) - "We mixed primary colors to make secondary and tertiary colors. Now we know how to mix just about any color we want! We made the color wheels into bright butterflies."
