I was on the hunt for a new color wheel project to reinforce primary and secondary colors this week. I wanted something fun that they could use to review and remember their color mixing. I found some old colored gel laying around and created this color wheel necklace. It was a big hit with my own kids so I had classes make them as well. I used color cellophane with students I I ran out of the old gels) They were a big hit and easy to make.
I prepped ahead of time by cutting square pieces of cardstock 2.5x2.5" and cutting the colored cellophane 2x2". Kids punched the holes using large punches common in scrapbooking and glued the cellophane between the panels. They then punched holes and threaded them on string to hang around their neck.
We completed an activity following where we challenged one another on color mixing questions.
