The set up: three jars of colored water- red, blue and yellow. Recycled trays with wells in them. Pipets, two for each color. Lots of paper towels on standby.
|You can how this small group space is a perfect opportunity for conversations and practicing our manners!|
Abigail tells us, "I'm mixing colors, I don't have green." Elise shares her knowledge of color mixing, "you need blue and yellow." Abigail takes her advice and adds blue, yellow... and red. "Oh! I made a mud puddle!"
Clara is one of my friends who always has a very intentional and unique way of using the materials. Here she explores technique as she sucks up color in her pipet, tips it up so the color drains into the bulb, then tips it over and dispense color into her wells. It obviously takes a long time to fill a well but Clara is patient and determined as she works, taking her time and enjoying the experience.
Another child seems to have created a study in green! It reminds me of a beautiful mosaic and makes me think of maybe creating a provocation of color shades..... I feel a trip to Lowes and their paint sample aisle coming on!
