Making color wheels all summer long in preschool

Summer time is a great time to explore color wheels. I like to use it at an opportunity to review basic colors…

The children at preschool made their own color wheels last year. Each class worked together as a group throughout the summer to make their color wheels and each color wheel was a little different…

Most of the children would bring something in from home that was the color of the week. So if the color was orange, the children brought something in that was orange and glued it to the wheel…

Each week the teachers emphasized a new color but if a child brought in a colored object that had already been explored, they simply added it to the wheel anyway..

By the end of summer, every piece of the wheel displayed a wonderful collage of materials from every color…

The children used lots of paint and glue to get the items to stay on…

Week by week the colorwheels started to take shape…

Until they were completed…

Everyone had a hand in this activity!

See this simple nature color wheel too!
