Playdoh Color Mixing: Secondary Colors

A Fun Color Activity for Little Kids

It’s like a magic for little kids to see the color change after some kneading playdoh. This is an easy and fun activity to identify colors! We played a secondary color project.

What you need

  • Playdoh (Red, Blue, Yellow)

  1. Make sure you mix the same amount of playdoh. Then knead, knead, and knead.

Red + Yellow = Orange

Yellow + Blue = Green

Red + Blue = Purple

You can show which primary color they use after they mix colors together. I found out the orange was the tricky one. The same amount of red and yellow didn’t make the orange I expected. (It was too red.) Please adjust the amount a bit. 🙂

Happy learning.
