Sense of Sight: Color Game

Sight Game

This is a fun and mess-free way to teach color blending to children! Both my girls had a wonderful time playing, and my eldest learned about how mixing two different colors creates a third color.

What You’ll Need:

  • One-gallon zip-top bags
  • Acrylic paint (use primary colors, the first time)
  • White paper
  • Tape

What To Do:

  1. Carefully squirt several tablespoons of each color of paint in different parts of the bag.
  2. Leaving as little air as possible in the bag, zip the bag and tape it to the table with a piece of white paper underneath.
  3. Explain how mixing two different colors will create a third color.
  4. Have your child choose two colors and ask what color they think will be made when they are mixed, then have them mix the colors.
  5. After all the color combinations have been made, the paint bag can be used for “drawing” shapes and practicing letters.
