color theory

Since ds has his basic colors down, I thought I'd slowly introduce color theory. Ill approach it the way i approach everything else: "why not? If he's too young, we'll try again later."

This week, I will focus on primary colors. I have a few coloring pages and a craft idea- but do you have any other ideas? A game, maybe?

Once i introduce primary/ secondary/ tertiary colors, we will make a color wheel together and start learning about complementary/ etc colors.

I've seen color wheel puzzles made for kids between 5-7 yrs old.   They are fun.

Plus who doesn't LOVE to blend and mix colors.   You can never go wrong mixing your own colors.

We enjoyed mixing our colors and 'un mixing' black marker ink.

It's been a while, but if you use, I think, alcohol on a line of marker ink, the ink will spread on the paper (or coffee filter). Each color in the ink appears. Pinterest it. It is an easy lab.
