Color Bugs!!!

I wanted to think of a unique way to introduce color mixing to my first graders and came up with this idea. First we read the story Mouse Paint and discussed primary and secondary colors. The students mixed their colors, drew their backgrounds, and collaged their bugs to complete their beautiful pictures.

  1. Such a cute way to teach the primary and secondary colors! I love mixing paint with kids...the joy they get from watching two colors swirl into a new color is so cool to watch :).
