Creative activities, such as Melting Marker Colours, enable children to expand their understanding of color and art on their own terms.
Cover your craft area with newspaper. Wet a piece of heavy, light-colored paper. You're going to experiment with mixing colors. With a Crayola Paint Brush and clear water, dampen the paper.
Choose a Crayola Washable Marker. Make strokes of colour on your wet paper.
Colour over the first colour with another colour. Or put a line of one colour close to another colour. Watch how the colours melt into each other to create a third colour, or a rainbow effect.
Experiment with different colours and amazing effects. What new colours can you make? Air-dry your papers on more newspaper, spreading them out so they don't touch.
