While Playing: 
  • Play the game with your child. Have your child sit on your lap, or close to you, and take turns using the mouse.
  • Talk about what you are doing while you're playing. For example, when you are asked to make the colour "orange" ask your child what you should click to make the colour orange, and click the colours according to your child's direction.
  • Have fun experimenting with combining and mixing different colours!
Ontario Curriculum Connections: 

Playing the Colour Combo game helps your child meet many learning goals, one of which is the following:

Kindergarten Program

The Arts: Visual Art

Explore different elements of design (e.g., colour, line, shape, texture, form) in visual arts

At-Home Activities: 

There are so many different ways that you can extend the learning from this activity into your child's own life. Doing this helps make the learning experience more meaningful for your child.

  • The best way to explore colour is through painting, or using art materials such as pastels or chalk, or even food colouring!
  • See how many secondary and tertiary colours you and your child can make using the primary colours.
  • Experiment with colour value (shade) by encouraging your child to add daubs of white and black to a colour.
  • Try one art material at a time, and discuss with your child how easy or difficult it was to mix the colours to create new ones.
  • Give your new colours fun names! For example, mix two parts yellow with one part red and call it Pretty Pumpkin!
