Art Time Doesn’t Have to Be Hard or Even Messy
When you want to enjoy creative activities with your kids, but don’t have the time or energy to deal with the mess, what do you do?
Use worksheets that take the stress out of it!
Art fun with kids often conjures up images of paint covering practically every surface – including your furniture and kids!
But, the good news is that you can provide your kids with powerful art lessons without spending hours cleaning up a mess.
As with most activities with kids, I encourage you to keep it simple.
Your kids just want to get in there and have some hands-on learning fun. They don’t need expensive supplies or complicated lessons to keep them engaged and excited.
That’s why I’m super excited to share this FREE color mixing activities pack with you!
Color Mixing Activities Can Be So Much Fun!
Have you explored mixing colors with your kids? If not, make sure to add it your homeschool fun activities and plans!
What is color mixing? Although I’m not an artist, I’ll do my best to explain.
Color mixing is basically learning about different colors using tools like a color wheel. With color mixing, you learn about:
- Primary colors
- Secondary colors
- Tertiary colors
These types of basic art activities are perfect for kids of all ages. No matter how old you are, it’s fascinating to see what happens when you mix colors like red and blue – plus, all of the different results you can get when you tweak.
