p is for pink

to the tune of “if you’re happy and you know it…”

when you mix red and white you get pink

when you mix red and white you get pink

when you mix them you will see

a new color magically

when you mix red and white you get pink

red + white = pink

with a squirt of red and a squirt of white in a sealed baggie, we squished and squashed them.

red + white = pink

red + white = pink

red + white = pink

then we snipped the ends and squirted out the pink paint (kind of like frosting!).

red + white = pink

there were lots of different brushes and rollers to choose from (and extra bathroom clean up after handwashing). : )

red + white = pink

also discovered was that the other end of the paintbrush can be used to “write” in the paint.

red + white = pink

in this color blending experiment, we discovered what happens with extra red….

red + white = pink

red + white = pink

when the paper dried we cut hearts from it!

some of the hearts went to the valentine station and some of the hearts were turned into valentines for the grandma and grandpa friends.

by the way, my favorite moment was when i brought out the ketchup bottle from k week (with red paint in it…which i highly recommnend…as well as yelow paint in a mustard bottle, white paint in a milk jug, etc.) and poured it on the paper. oh, funny stuff. some of the preschoolers gave a preschool version of rolling their eyes at me.

red + white = pink

    I tried the red paint for K week (ketchup). I had added flour to make it less runny. Learned a lesson though…when it isn’t refrigerated, it spoils! That was some stinky paint!!!
