Primary Color Experiment

Primary Colors Experiment

Here’s a fun, easy way to mix different colors to see what they make.

What You’ll Need:

Red, yellow and blue paint
Clear plastic zipper lunch bags

What You’ll Do:

STEP 1. Fill bags with different combinations of paint colors – try one with yellow and blue, another with red and blue for example.

STEP 2. Seal the bags closed and tape them to a flat surface.

STEP 3. Use hands to blend and squish the paints together to see what colors emerge.
