Mouse Paint!

Kindergarten Artists read the book "Mouse Paint" by Ellen Walsh. In this fun book, three white mice find three jars of paint. One jar is red, one is yellow and one blue. Thinking the paint is "mouse paint," they each jump in one jar. When they climb out and walk around they drip paint in puddles on the floor.
The yellow mouse steps in a red puddle and makes...ORANGE!
The blue mouse steps in a yellow puddle and makes... GREEN!
The red mouse steps in a blue puddle and makes... PURPLE!

We drew three white mice and used primary paint colors to paint the mice.
We then had our mice do exactly as the mice in the book did and we mixed secondary colors using the primary colors.
