Snow Colours
February 2020

 

While outside Tobias found some markers that the preschoolers had left out for us to use. He put them in a bucket and handed them out to all his peers. As they pushed the markers into the snow, they watched the colours bleed out onto the wet and icy ground. Ivy, quickly discovered that she could make lines and squiggles on the harder snow that had been packed flat from the children walking across it. 



To expand on the children's interest in colours and mark making  Vanessa decided to try a different type of media. She put some water and paint into a squeeze bottle and shook it up. After a variety of colours where created, we brought them outside! Henry picked up a bottle, “green!” he said recognizing  the right colour. Henry and Tobias then started to fill a shovel with the coloured water, “I wonder what you’re going to do with the shovel?” one of the educators asked. He picked up the shovel by the handle and watched the water slowly flow out onto the snow. Other children used the squeeze bottles to spray the snow and watching it change colours.

After all the squeeze bottles of paint were empty  Vanessa walked around with Henry identifying the different colours on the snow. They discovered that some of the colours had mixed together to make a completely different colour!
