One thing I did with cellophane is to make teaching tools. Since we
always read the story Mouse Paint, by Ellen Stohl Walsh, I cut out mouse
body shapes with an oval window in the center of each out of heavy
tagboard. Over one window I glued blue, one yellow, one red. When you
place these on the overhead, it's easy for the kids to see how colors do
mix (though the red actually looks pink on the overhead). Actually, I
made a set of these for each table as well (I have 8 tables). They can
hold them up to the light and see the "miracle" of color mixing. Sounds
pretty basic, but they love it. Oh, and I laminated each one, so they
stand up to wear and tear.
