Salty Rainbows:Primary Colours


'Babble Dabble Do' had a project for Salty Rainbows http://babbledabbledo.com/process-art-idea-salty-rainbows/ that doubles as a lesson in primary & secondary colours.
O absolutely loves using droppers and food colouring. http://mamadrool.blogspot.ca/2014/10/montessori-style-liquid-dropper.html
Chances were high, she would be game!


I went all 'teacher' on her and introduced the three primary colours: red, yellow and blue.
M: "And the three primary colours are used to make secondary colours: green, purple and..."
O: "Orange, Mom."
M: "Ah yes! Orange;)"
Cue cane, to remove me from the stage;)


The only lesson learned here, was (once again) let the learner do the teaching!

O continued with her droppers and had loads of fun!
