Colour and light

There are lots of different ways we can play with colour and light. We can get quite magical results from combining the two. Have you ever seen a stained glass window? Here’s a photo of the one in my house…

There are some amazing stained glass windows when you look around. There are some enormous ones in churches, this one is from the Notre Dame in Paris. Can you see the pictures that have been made with the different colours?

And there is a gorgeous ceiling in the National Gallery of Victoria. Here is just a small part of the magnificent ceiling. how many different colours can you see? What about shapes? I can see some triangles and rectangles.

In your envelope this week, we have included some large pieces of white tissue paper with some smaller squares of coloured tissue paper. You can cut the smaller squares into different shapes, or even smaller shapes if you like, and then paste them onto the big piece of tissue paper. We did this activity at kinder, we noticed that we could make different colours and shades by overlapping the pieces of paper. Then we blu tacked it onto the window so the light could shine through…

We added a leaf too! Because it was such a bright happy colour.

You will need to be very gentle with this activity. The paper is fragile. So perhaps take some deep calming breaths first, and that will help you work slowly and carefully. Then wait for the sun to shine through so you can see the beautiful colours!
