Colour Mixing

Materials Required:

  • Paper
  • Red, Yellow and Blue paint
  • Glass to draw around and a pencil

Over the last few weeks we’ve had a play with colour mixing using primary colours. To do this we made a grid of circles on our paper and then started with two primary colours one at each side of the paper, we then mixed as many different shades of the secondary colour as we could manage in the remaining circles. It was really interesting to see how many colours we could mix!

Yellow and red – orange

Blue and yellow – green

Red and blue – purple
