Blending friendships happens naturally through color mixing. Individually, children have red, yellow, and blue but together they have every color of the rainbow! Children can pair up and enjoy mixing and creating colors in an interactive and exciting way. Kindness, understanding, and cooperation are wonderful additional benefits!
Color Mixing Experiments for Preschoolers
Color mixing sparks curiosity and paves the way for introducing the scientific method. Critical thinking skills are encouraged when we ask children questions such as: What do you think will happen if we mix red and blue together? Can we use two colors to make green? How many different colors do you think we can make?
Color mixing illustrates to children that while they are fantastic individually, together, they are capable of so much more. Emphasize character traits such as respect, cooperation, kindness, and understanding. Building community and consideration in the classroom is promoted when including this kindness exercise into the lesson plan.
