Orange You Glad…….

One of my very favourite things to do is to make art with school children.  Here, a group of 4 & 5 year olds are discovering the colour orange by mixing red and yellow and painting pumpkins.  But the rule is:  no mixing the paint in the pot. No, no, no! After learning how to draw a biiiiiig pumpkin, the children filled in the pumpkins with yellow paint.   The magic happened when they put a little red on top of the yellow.  Their reaction?  Priceless!

    Children love art, are proud of their illustrations, and don’t really think about what someone else might do or say. Too bad we grow up. 🙂

    Terrific for this week’s challenge. Orange is such a happy color, isn’t it?

    The children were so proud of themselves! And it made me so happy to see them discover the power to create – to make a colour out of other colours. So much fun! Thanks, Lia – Happy weekend! 🙂
