We used the story “Mix It Up!” to explore colour mixing. This was a follow on from Lily’s comment, “I like red because it makes my favourite colour pink.” However when she was asked what colour she mixed with red to make pink – she unsure. We mixed all the primary colours and then we tried mixing black and white to make tints and tones (ie lighter or darker). This lead to a session of finger painting on a table outside. Now we all know how to make brown!
