Her Daily Craft: Color Mixing


It’s funny what happens to the kids of bloggers. These are kids who will do something cute and ask if you’re posting it to Facebook (well, that’s probably everyone’s kids these days), who take pictures for their own pretend blog posts or play making videos because that’s what their parents do.

The other day the girl asked me if she could “do something for Our Daily Craft.”

Of course! I said. The girl takes over Our Daily Craft with a lesson in color mixing.

This is what she decided to do. It’s basic color mixing but I love her enthusiasm and desire to share!

She got these paints from her art teacher and she’s been loving them. The girl takes over Our Daily Craft with a lesson in color mixing.

First you squirt out a little bit of the primary colors. The girl takes over Our Daily Craft with a lesson in color mixing.

Mix them together and see what happens.

Then add a color to the secondary colors (we had to use the purple she made because there wasn’t one in her collection) and see what happens. The girl takes over Our Daily Craft with a lesson in color mixing.

Can you predict what will happen when you add another color?

What happens when you mix purple and yellow? Why? (I explained that when you mix complementary colors like yellow and purple, red and green or orange and blue you end up with a dark, muddy color.)

I’m happy to turn the blog over to her anytime she wants, and as you can probably already tell from this week there will be a lot more kid-inspired and kid-directed crafts here for the next little bit.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What are you and your kids making? I’d love to hear about it!
