Learning About Colours

A few days ago, the kids had a practical lesson in mixing colours. Here’s what we used:

  • Plastic egg cartons. These worked very well – not breakable, and 10 wells which is more than a regular paint palette
  • Food colouring. I have quite a few colours but just the primary colours (blue, yellow and red) will suffice. They cost under a dollar each at NTUC Fairprice.
  • Syringes. Nothing like the freedom to squirt to get the kids excited! Ours are saved from visits to the doctor, when the kids are prescribed medicine.

I filled up a few wells with water, added a touch of colouring to each one, and let the kids loose….
