Finger painting and making colors

January 19, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Teach french kids children colors

Today was beautiful outside so I decided to let the kids fingerpaint outside on a big piece of paper. What we focused on in our lesson was combing 2 colors to make a new color. An example is: Bleu et Jaune fait vert. (Blue and yellow make green).

If it’s still cold where you live, you can do this indoors with finger paints, water colors or acrylic paints. Kids love painting so much you’ll have them speaking in no time. Here’s some color words you can use:

Blue – bleu
Yellow – jaune
Orange – orange
Green – vert
Red – rouge
Pink – rose
Light blue – bleu clair
Brown – marron
Grey – gris
White – blanc
Black – noir
