Caterpillars and Color Mixing

Unlike Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were actually fun and somewhat successful. Thursday we were at D’s where we finished up our caterpillars and played a bit with them. We also read The Very Hungry Caterpillar about a dozen times throughout the morning as it is a favorite and D had the gigantic pop up book. And pop up books make everything 10x more fun.

D’s boys were having a rough week so we just let the kids take it easy for the most part. After lunch we read Mouse Paint, a favorite in this household. That set up our color mixing lesson perfectly.

We didn’t expect the boys to get the concept but it still gave us a chance to go over colors, let them practice pouring and Olivia got to work on her color mixing concepts.

Putting the colors in the glasses
We did the initial mixing of colors because the glasses were… well, glass and they weren’t ours to break.
But after that was over we let them pour themselves

They had a great time so I’ll probably do it again with just O and M during our review week.
