The children made a request to mix the primary colours into homemade play dough. Some of the children found it frustrating as it was difficult to knead the dough to thoroughly mix the the colours. Rocco noted that when the red was added to the dough it looked pink. Alfie asked "how do you make pink?" Rocco replied "mix white and red together." Simone responded "No, white and blue make pink." The group decided that they should find out which statement was true. The group discovered mixing white and red makes pink. This discovery prompted the children to see if they could make any other colours. Julia was delighted when she was able to light yellow and share her discovery with the group.
