Today the beautiful light coming through the dining room windows inspired me to do something bright and cheerful with the kids. We learned about mixing colors- what happens when you combine blue and yellow- and the shades of the rainbow. Zion, who chronically forgets her colors, (she is a two year old, after all) even got the hang of it! They had a great time mixing food dye to make primary colors- red, yellow and blue; then we combined them to create the rainbow effect. It was so pretty the glasses are still hanging out on my windowsill!
