Color mixing is always one of my favorite units! Learning colors is a huge aspect of preschool curriculum, and there are so many great books and resources on them. You can talk about colors just about anywhere you are! The idea of mixing two colors to form a new color is somewhat of a complex concept for preschoolers. While it may be easier to understand that red and white make pink, it′s just not as easy to remember that blue and red make purple. Whenever I do color mixing with young children, I try to make the process of learning one that is memorable. If we engage their senses in the process, then it becomes an even greater tool.
Coloring gives your kids an opportunity to express their creative side. A child makes an imaginary world in his mind before drawing the picture on the sheet. So, hand your kids a box of crayons and set them free. This can lead to many highly desired outcomes. It allows your children to think about the different color combinations that he or she can use to give an appealing look to the picture. Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. Coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
Using a monochromatic schemes allows you create a color scheme based on various shades and tints of one hue. Although it lacks color contrast, it often ends up looking very clean and polished. It also allows you to easily change the darkness and lightness of your colors. I like to use monochromatic color schemes for charts and graphs, but only when creating high contrast isn't necessary. However, monochromatic schemes don't tend to "pop," so if you're looking for a color scheme that's bright and attention grabbing, this one isn't your best bet.
