Objectives:

  • To follow up on a wonderful story of friendship and differences.
  • To teach children how to make the color green by mixing the two primary colors, blue and yellow.

What You Need:

  • Story, "Little Blue and Little Yellow", by Leo Lionni [click here for the book]
  • Blue tempera paint or finger paint
  • Yellow tempera or finger paint
  • 1 piece of white construction or finger paint paper

What You Do:

  1. Read the story.

  2. Discuss the story with the children. Ask them how they felt when little blue and yellow's parents didn't accept them.

  3. Tell the children that they are going to retell the story with paint.

  4. Give each group of children some blue paint and some yellow paint.

  5. Tell them to use both hands to put one spot of blue on their paper and beside it a spot of yellow.

  6. Then tell them to make another spot below these two spots by using both fingers together. This will represent blue and yellow hugging.
