Purple Day - Kids Handprint Project

It was Purple Day at my son's Pre-School and it’s always fun to check his backpack to see what he’s been working on at school. When they learn about colors, they have everything covered from wearing purple to school, sharing a purple snack, and even creating a purple themed craft. I’m a sucker for any project involving my kids’ handprints, so I was a big fan of this creative handprint project showcasing purple.

It was fun to see his excitement as he explained how he first made red handprints, then blue handprints, and when the red and blue mixed it made purple...magically! What a fun way to learn about basic color mixing with paint. I also like how the teachers added the words “red + blue = purple”, and the simple math “1 + 1 = 2” at the bottom of this handprint project.
