edible color wheel

This week we decided to do a lesson on color theory. We followed this great idea. Here are the girls mixing their primary colors to get started.
Our primary and secondary colors look good. We used store bought frosting (it was on hand) and RITZ crackers (they were on hand too).

Their smiles never ceased. As you can see our primary, secondary and tertiary colors are finished. It was very easy and worked without a problem. Overall it was a great hands on lesson that I believe made them understand the mixing process. (primary +primary = secondary and primary + secondary = tertiary)

The last step was to mix all the colors together to make a neutral. That is the gray one in the middle. Lots of fun!! Try it!!
