Mixing Colors

We've been reading a Malay book on colors and sonshine learnt about colors mixing.

I didn't want him to just memorize the fact but to see for himself. Hence we did some color mixing today!

I showed N what are the primary colors. I wrote the words 'blue, red yellow' on the paper and N painted the respective colors over them.

Then we started mixing! Although he knew what to expect, he was still intrigued to witness the colors magically change into its secondary colors.

You can also play color mixing using playdough. It's a bit tricky though, you need to mix an equal amount of dough otherwise, the color wouldn't be obvious.

Have fun! :)


  1. Ahhh... my girl too always get excited whenever she sees the colour changes after mixing. We didn't do much on academic but a lot on art and crafts.:)

  2. you're right, im discovering that kids can learn just as well from art activities! Thats why i like what you are doing with your kids-they've loads of fun and still learn! :) Good job mummy!
