i put yellow and blue on opposite sides of a piece of paper and had the kids use their paintbrushes to make a new color- green! afterwards we added a piece of text that read "yellow + blue = green", introducing math symbols that they can read. we also mixed paint in baggies and had fun making making different shapes and letters with our fingers. later i cut a hole in the baggies and the kids used the paint to color our dinosaur mural!
our dinosaur ended up being a great ice breaker for mia's first day at school!
