This primary colour mixing project works on blending tissue paper to discover secondary colours.

This activity was inspired by the “Create a Color Collage” in Jamie Reimers’s book LEARN – which is a fantastic book featuring all kinds of fun learning activities for preschoolers – check it out!
I wrote the names of two primary colours on the top of some white card in the three possible combinations. My son used a glue stick to attach the tissue paper pieces to the card.
Where the two different primary colours overlapped, the secondary colour started to show!
But F wasn’t happy to stop there – he wanted to add water! So I grabbed a spray bottle and he spritzed each collage with water for extra colour mixing!
We both loved the results!
I was actually concerned that this was too basic for him – he knows perfectly well which primary colours make secondary. But despite this he was still fascinated by seeing the secondary colour start to show when he sprayed the water!Primary Colour Mixing Activity #kidsactivities Click To Tweet
