Why Teaching Kids to Mix Paint is More Important Than You Think (And How It Can Save Your Walls)

Updated: Feb 18, 2023

As a parent, you're probably used to seeing your kids create art with their hands, feet, and even their faces. But have you ever stopped to think about the mess that comes with it?

We're talking about paint, folks. And while it may seem like a recipe for disaster, we're here to tell you that teaching your kids to mix primary colours is more important than you might think. And it can even save your walls.

Let's start with the basics. Mixing primary colours is a great way for kids to learn about colour theory. But it's not just about creating new colours; it's about understanding the science behind it. When you mix blue and yellow, you get green. When you mix red and blue, you get purple. This is a valuable lesson for kids, especially when it comes to art and design.

But here's where it gets really important: when kids learn to mix paint, they're less likely to make a mess. You read that right!

Think about it: if your kid knows how to create the colour they want, they're less likely to spill paint all over your carpet or furniture. And if they do happen to make a mess, they're more likely to know how to clean it up. Win-win!

Of course, we're not saying that teaching your kids to mix paint will eliminate all messes. Let's be real, kids will be kids. But it's a step in the right direction. And who knows, maybe they'll even become the next great artist. Just make sure they don't decide to create a mural on your walls. Unless, of course, they use washable paint.

So, the next time your kids want to get creative with paint, don't panic. Embrace the mess and teach them how to mix primary colours.

You might be surprised at how much they learn and how much cleaner your home stays. Plus, who knows, you might even discover a new talent in your little ones.

Happy painting!
