I use visual examples to show the children different ways they can dye their shirts to create different types of spirals. I teach the kids how to create the entire color spectrum using only fuchsia, turquoise and yellow. Upon request, for ages 8 and up, I do a coloring activity. We may even bust out the whiteboard. This interactive method helps to reinforce how to create the secondary colors using only the three primary. For the younger children, we teach it on a more age-appropriate level. They see what we teach them unfold before their very eyes. It is always so awesome to watch their eyes brighten as they see what they can create.
