Colour mixing

Part of the curriculum for reception class children is to 'explore what happens when they mix colours.' In order to encourage this, we only provide yellow, blue and red paints in the outdoor area and sometimes black and white to create tones and tints. This term we have also experimented with covering ping pong balls with paint and rolling them in trays to mix the colours. When creating the autumn tree display, the children finger painted the leaves and mixed the colours on their fingers to create new ones!
