Crafty Friday: Warm and Cool Colors

This Crafty Friday is an extension of the color wheels lesson. It shows kids that certain colors convey certain feelings. Warm colors [red. orange, and yellow] convey warmth, happiness, comfort, etc., while cool colors [blue, green, and purple] can create solemn, tranquil, and even sad moods.

Starting off, we played a little game similar to the color wheel game. This time, though, we divided the table into a warm side and cool side


and went on a mission to find objects to fill each side.


Then, using the same concept, we made our own collages of warm and cool colors with construction paper and glue.


For Finn, I just cut out shapes of scenery and let him glue it down.


Audrie managed a scene on her own.


Happy Crafting!
