Paint Mixing Bags

We placed out a number of large plastic bags with various colour combinations of paint sealed within.  The children were invited to mix the paint together without opening the bags. They twisted, rolled, squished, and smoothed the bags until the colours mixed into beautiful new colours!  As the individual colours mixed, wonderful shades were created and layered together within the bag. It was interesting to hear the children discussing the new colours and naming them as they noticed each new one.
