What a fun week! There's quite a lot you can talk about and do when the topic is rainbows! The picture above is from when we made our own rainbow inside! The kids learned that all you need for a rainbow is light and water (prism).
Here's what else we did!
Then came the fun part! Colors!!
Free paint to experiment with the 3 primary colors:
The serious painter:
Almost made black!
More experimenting...What colors make the colors in our markers?
Red, Orange, Green and Black markers:
Lastly, we used oil, paint and water to make artwork.
Then we used paint brushed to drip it into water.
Gave it a little swirl..
Placed a piece of paper on it..
And ta da! Art!
And of course we can't forget our rainbow lunch on Monday.
