  1. For each child put a dab of 2 primary colors on the paper plate to mix; yellow and blue make green, yellow and red make orange, red and blue make purple. Let each child decide.
  2. Mix colors with their fingers, fun! Allow to dry.
  3. Take scissors and starting from the edge, cut the plate into a spiral.
