During our preschool summer camp, I used our outdoor time to show them how to mix colors on a mirror. I love using mirrors outdoors, and we’ve done other watercolor activities on top of them, such as when we mixed yellow and blue by hand. We have a safety mirror that was once on a stand in the church nursery. I unscrewed the stand so it could lie flat on a surface. It has been used in so many ways! On this sunny morning, it was placed on top of our picnic table.
What you will need:
The chalk absorbed and mixed the watercolors beautifully.We enjoyed looking at ourselves in the mirror during this process, too.Children would come and go. They’d play, stop and mix colors, and run off to play some more. My favorite kind of activity! Theirs, too!
