We learned about Primary colours (red, blue and yellow) and how other colours can be made by mixing these colours (Secondary colours -- green, orange and purple). We mixed the colours as a group and put them in the window in mason jars. Don't they look beautiful?

Ask your child about mixing colours. What do you get when you mix blue and yellow? What colours so you mix to make orange? How do you make brown? (that's brown in the smaller jar on the right end)
(we haven't talked about tints and shades yet!)

Then I put some coloured water out and students mixed their own "potions"(their words) in small containers. They had to use eyedroppers to transfer the water. It takes a while to figure out how to use an eyedropper!

We made something special by mixing colours. But I can't show them here! You parents are going to have to wait a few weeks to see them :). And the general public? Well, you're just going to have to hear me talk about them......
