Colors are everywhere and it is a wonderful experience for children to see how colors mix, and how different colors blend to form other colors. This content can help children learn that red, yellow, and blue are the primary colors. Combining two primary colors make a secondary color.


This activity has several sections:

Activity 1:

  1. Read the question and note the requested color.
  2. Drag and drop two colored circles on the top to the blank circle.
  3. Place the selected colored circles on top of each other so their colors "combine" to create the requested color.
