“You know Ethan, we can mix paint like that and make more colors too. We can do that maybe later if you want to??” (toddler freezes, slowly smiles, wiggles his toes and then his legs and then jumps up — LET’S DO DAT!”). Ethan’s newest curious george book has a page about learning how to mix colors to make new colors. Well. Let’s just say this book came to life. We grabbed Yellow, Red, and Blue paint and taught the combos to make more colors! Yes. Preschool is all about mess and fun! (just embrace the mess. it’s probably washable).
