Explore the primary colors as well as their tints and shades with this brand-new set of printables designed to introduce the three primary colors to kids in a fun and engaging way!

What are primary colors…..

Imagine that colors are like the building blocks of a beautiful rainbow. Primary colors are like the most special and essential building blocks because they cannot be made by mixing other colors together. These magical colors are the starting point for all the other colors we see around us.

Now, are you ready to meet our three amazing primary colors? They are:

  1. 🍎 Red: A bold and passionate color, just like the ripest apple!
  2. 💙 Blue: A calm and peaceful color, just like the vast ocean!
  3. 🌻 Yellow: A bright and sunny color, just like the happiest sunflower!

What Makes Primary Colors Special?

Here’s the super cool part! When two primary colors mix together, they create new colors. For example, when red and blue mix, we get purple. When blue and yellow mix, we get green. And when red and yellow mix we get orange!

These new colors we make by mixing are called “Secondary Colors.” Isn’t that amazing?

How artists use primary colors…..

Artists use primary colors as the starting point for all their masterpieces. They mix and blend them together to create all the beautiful colors you see in paintings, drawings, and even in the world around us!

You can find primary colors everywhere – in your favorite toys, clothes, and even in the flowers and trees outside. When you see these colors, you’ll know they are the special building blocks of color magic!
