Montessori color-mixing activities are popular activities in Montessori schools and homeschools. Color-mixing activities are great at any time of the year. They’re especially fun for St. Patrick’s Day or anytime in the spring or summer as ways to create rainbows of color.
Today, I’d like to share some helpful Montessori color-mixing activities from around the blogosphere.

Wow these are such lovely colour mixing ideas. Colours and paints are always a hit with my boys. Whenever I can’t think of anything to do, I would just take our paints and art kits then doodle right away! Can’t wait to try these
