Rock Art for Preschoolers

These are the paintings that our kids made at home this week with their Art Activity.
I call it “Rock Art”.
We placed 2 sheets of paper in the bottom of a plastic bin. Then we put in 3 dabs of paint in primary colors (yellow, blue, and red). Then we tossed in a handful of rocks and shook them around. When we didn’t get the effect we wanted, we sprayed water on the paper and paint with a spray bottle.


The experiment was to learn what colors are created when the primary colors are mixed. We were were aiming for Purple (red + blue), Green (blue + yellow), and Orange (yellow + red).
We were pleasantly surprised when we also got a bit of teal and brown!
The kids say: Learning is FUN! 😀
