Mess Free Color Mixing

Color mixing is fun, but it's oh-so-much more fun when it's mess free. 

I promise both you and your kiddos will love this fun activity!!

Supplies needed:
primary color paints
zip loc bags
painters tape (or some type of tape)

Start by adding two of your mixing colors into a zip loc bag ( and yellow, yellow and blue, red and blue).  Close your bag and tape it down to your table or counter.  Then invite your little ones over for some color mixing fun.

Little Man just like to smash the bag....

But Sweet Girl really enjoyed squeezing and squishing the colors together to figure out what color they would make.

Once you've mixed your colors together to create your new color, slide a piece of white paper underneath your bag.  This creates a great surface to do some "mess-free" drawing.

And if you're kids are anything like mine, they will beg you to paint!  
Pull out those brushes and paper and go to town!!

Happy mixing, drawing and painting!

  1. I love this idea, it looks like so much fun... and my kids would ask for the paint to be let out too!
