Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet — create a rainbow of colors out of the three primaries (and white)! Help your child to learn about the science of color through this thoroughly experimental art activity. Make a special color wheel that displays the primary and secondary colors. Encourage your child to be a mini-scientist and hypothesize what will happen when he mixes red and yellow. Set up a special color mixing exploration and discover how two colors can mix together to form an entirely new appearing hue.
The Color Blending Rainbow activity can be expanded into other learning areas (in addition to art and science). Practice the basic math skill of counting with your child as he numbers each row of his especially unique rainbow.
