Color Mixing in a Plastic Bag

The Color Kittens (A Little Golden Book)After picking a color for our house (we're in the middle of painting it this week), I was inspired to do a few "Color" theme posts!

 The Color Kittens (A Little Golden Book)by Margaret Wise Brown is a Little Golden book I remember from my childhood.  It introduces little ones to mixing colors in a whimsical way!

You need:
Plastic bags
Red, yellow, blue paint

1)  Mix yellow and blue in one bag.  Mix red and yellow in one bag.  Mix red and blue in the last bag.  Seal

2)  Smoosh the paints together in the bag to form the secondary colors!

As long as the bags don't break, this is not too messy!  If you put enough paint in each bag, you can use it to practice writing letters, numbers, shapes, etc.  You might want to double bag it if you plan to use it more than once.

Looks like a lot of fun! I've used bigger bags and put paper in there with foam sponges and let them "paint" in the bag ;)
