Mouse Paint (Color Mixing)
After reading the book Mouse Paint, by Ellen Stoll Walsh, we designed this myViewBoard Originals - Mouse Paint (Color Mixing) 🐭🎨 to let kids learn about color and color mixing with these fun activities and games!
You don’t really need to have the book for this myViewBoard Originals, but it is a nice way to make the connection between what kids have been read and what they experience to bring the learning to life.
We also design myViewBoard Originals Online Game - Mouse Paint 🐭🎨 for more adventures with colors! The mouse climbed into the red jar of paint and became orange.
Can you remember what color was the original mouse? If you said yellow, you're right!
🎨 Observe everyday life objects colors:
- Begin with observing the colors of the objects in our everyday life to guide kids thinking about what color is? Drag an object and place it into the matching color box.
🎨 Color Wheel Activity:
- Arrange the everyday life color objects on the color wheel. Kids will learn to recognize the color and place it into the color wheel.
🎨 Spin Game of Color：
- Take turns to spin the color wheel spinner. Drag the color token on the table with the corresponding color object.
