Take a paper plate and some Karo Syrup, put some food coloring on it with a drop of red, yellow, and blue. Turn the Karo Syrup on the paper plate and something amazing happens. this was our latest color club project.
this is a great art lesson to show how all colors are made from the primary colors. By turning the plate the secondary colors start to appear. Green, Purple, and orange.
if you keep mixing with toothpicks you will pick up even more colors.
After the art lesson, of course they had to play. It is color club, and they love to mix.
Then we talked about monochromatic colors, you start with one color and can get different shades of the same color.
I love this time with Gracee, my youngest, and she loves color. We all voted to continue on through the summer, and do some tie die aprons. That sounds like a great idea.
