Englefield Green Day Nursery and Preschool explore colour mixing

Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey have been mixing different paints to create new colours, as part of the organisation’s Growing Artists enhancement.

The children covered a table in cling film and then placed both red and blue paint on top. They then placed another layer of cling film on top of the paint and began to mix the paint with their hands.

“The children were asked to predict what colour would be made by mixing the two paints together and they were very excited to see the results,” said Charlotte Martin, acting deputy nursery manager.

The Growing Artists enhancement aims to encourage creativity in art.
