Let's paint! This week we did a small book study with the book Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh. This is a great book and activity to learn about mixing colors in preschool!
We started by cutting and gluing the mouse and puddle graphics (click the link to get them for free) on a large piece of black construction paper.
We then used the colors red, yellow and blue to paint the mice and puddles. As we walked through the book, we mixed colors in the puddles, just as the mice did. It was great to see the reactions on the kid's faces as they watched the colors blend and a new color appeared!
