As part of our Amazing Artists Camp this week, we mixed primary colors in white play dough to make a secondary color.
We flattened the dough and added a couple of drops of two primary colors and gently folded the dough over, like a taco. Then, the squeezing began!
We also had citrus juicers, hammers and rollers to help move the color through the dough.
There is always something so magical when preschoolers discover that blending two colors makes a new color. "Hey look! It made green!"
"Oh, now I see purple!"
And moving all that play dough around is a great workout for those little hands and fingers!
For more great ideas using play dough, check out this post by The Imagination Tree. We used the "Cooked Play Dough" for this project. Nice and soft!
