Mixing Colors

This morning the children had the opportunity to to mix paint in the maple room. They first started off with three colors Red,Yellow,and Blue. From there they began mixing colors together to create more colors for the children to choose from throughout the day. They also used the color wheel as a guide to choose colors they wanted to make.
