Here is a cool unique way to showcase COLORS in the form of a color wheel from Green Art Box! Kids can easily help make this vibrant wheel by punching multiple SHADES of a color (acknowledging there are multiple shares of the same color) then gluing them on a sheet of poster board to display at home or in the classroom.
The project calls for liquid glue or glue sticks, but I think Spray Adhesive would be much easier to glue the dot especially in high quantity like this project.
- scrap paper in various colors (magazines, wrapping paper, junk mail, empty packaging, coupons, etc)
- stiff cardboard, cardstock, or poster board
- hole punch
- glue or sparay adhesive
- black pen/pencil
1) Use a large plastic lid to trace a large circle (using black pen) on your piece of card-stock.
2) Use a ruler and black pen to divide your circle into 6 uniform pie pieces (as shown in attached color wheel).
3) Label each section by color (this will get covered up by paper, just use as a guide). Set drawn out wheel aside.
4) Search through scrap papers (magazines, wrapping paper, junk mail, empty packaging, coupons, etc) to find samplings of the 6 colors on wheel (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). NOTE: you want many different shades of each color… the blue in blueberries is not the same as blue sky.
5) As you find samples of each color, hole punch out the swatches and glue onto the appropriate section on color wheel. Continue to “file” each color sample into the appropriate section on wheel until each color section is completely filled by dots.
6) When dry, label each color section around outer edge as “Reds” or “Blues” … this shows that there are many variances within each color.
