Inside: Primary Color Mixing Activity for Preschoolers

I sit here (bag of jelly beans in hand) at 9:18 PM on a Sunday night writing this post because it. is. awesome. 

And you need to do it. 

Hopefully, you still have that bottom of the Easter basket filler lying around. 

As I began cooking Easter dinner, I was being asked a million questions. "Can I haaaaveeee an apple?" "Wheeeerre are my markers? "Babe, did you move my grill tongs?" 

I mean, I get it. I am the keeper of all things.

But it was Easter dinner! They needed to keep busy so I can focus on this paprika potato recipe.

So after taking a quick look around, it came to me. We needed to make use of all this shredded paper in the Easter baskets before my 10-month-old eats it all.

This primary color mixing activity was a blast! 

Suddenly, "Can I have a snack" changed to "LOOK! Red and yellow make orange!"

And once they got going, this activity lasted a VERY long time.

WHY is this primary color mixing activity so important? 

By Kindergarten, children will be asked to participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about kindergarten topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.

This primary color mixing activity is a fantastic way to get your preschooler making observations, and having discussions about what they discover!

This primary color mixing activity is also perfect for a variety of ages. 

Need a way to help different age groups work together? Sensory bins are the perfect answer and you can read how sensory bins build teamwork here.
