Colour Exploration!

Reception have been exploring colour using spices, plants, fruits and vegetables.

They were very excited to see what colours could be made. The spices were mixed with water to create a paste we could paint onto card. We talked about the dark and light colours we had made.

We also experimented with fruit and vegetables, rubbing them onto the paper. We were so surprised with colours we had made. The berries were very good at creating red and purple colours. We had to use the beetroot very carefully; this was very good at making a strong purply red colour.

We also explored mixing paint colours and were excited to get our hands all messy! Can you see what new colours we have made by mixing two colours?


We have been really expressing ourselves with colour from new dyes.
