Colourful sensory bags

Using small snack bags we made some colourful sensory bags today.  The children helped to squirt some paint into each bag and I sealed them all very securely.  At first we made yellow, red and blue bags.  I gave the children cotton buds to write with.

Next we mixed two colours of paint to see if it would make a new colour.  D decided to mix yellow and red and she made a brand new colour - organge.


D was impressed that she'd made a new colour and she squished and squashed the bag a lot until the colour was fully mixed up.  Next we went back over to the paint bottles and I asked D if she could remember which two colours she had mixed to make orange.

We made more bags with red and yellow paint in (making sure they were fully sealed before we began).  The children enjoyed squashing them, using the cotton buds to mix the paint around and patting them.

We did the same with blue and yellow paint and blue and red paint and made new green and purple paint.  Then D said "can I make pink paint?" So that began a whole new conversation about what two colours would mix together to make pink paint.  I had to dig out the white paint from the paint box and we experimented to see which colours mixed with white would make pink.  Eventually D was happy to make pink mixing red and white.
