Activity: New colours

Materials:
Finger or watercolour paints
Time:
15 minutes
Skills:
Colours, art & design

Use finger paint or watercolour to show how two colours can be mixed together to produce a third colour. Mixing paint helps children learn about colours and shades. Ask your child what he thinks will happen if you mix a colour with white paint. Learning is messy—but it’s also great fun!
