Somebody gave her some Playdoh recently, in basic primary colors plus white. Last night I made a purple snail and left it sitting on her desk.
Today she was asking how I managed to get purple, since she didn't have any. "Did you mix colors?" Yes, of course. "What colors did you mix to get purple?"
I explained, then showed her how blue and yellow could be mixed to get green. She's now sitting at her desk trying out combinations of all of the colors. "Oh! I haven't done red and yellow yet! What will I get if I mix red and yellow?"
I despair for our educational system.
