Colours are all around us!  Colours from nature, colours from things around us, and colours of the rainbow!  Colours evoke many emotions - YELLOW - HAPPY, BLUE - SAD, GREEN - CALM, RED - ANGRY.  Colours are fun, and they make our world beautiful.  We learnt all about colours through a short holiday programme.

Learning about colour tones using the Montessori Colour Box 3.

Playing with colour tessellations, while learning about shapes at the same time.

Pegging colourful pegs onto the clothes line

Exploring how the colours mix to form a new colour!

Showing off our very own rainbow

Rainbow-making in progress

See,  we caught a rainbow with a basin of water, a mirror and the sun!

Beautiful rainbow in the sky!  Actually, there are two...
Colours from nature

Pandan leaves, dragon fruits, carrot, tomatoes, apples, lime ...

Extracting the juices for natural colouring

Fun,  gooey, slimy goop.

Blue ice melting in the yellow water - water turns to green!

Brrrrrr.....what did I get myself into?

A pail of cold, cold ice and the animals that live in the icy, cold oceans



Playing with the ice - fun and cold!

Look at the ice crystals.
