how about overlapping geometric shapes (or sports shapes, etc.)using primary colors? Where the shapes overlap they can create the secondary colors, etc.

Subject: really quick painting lesson
I thought I had two whole weeks left in the quarter, but this coming
week has only three days, darn the luck (Rodeo Weekend--yippee!). I'm
attempting a painting lesson with the rowdy 6th grade boys. I feel it's
important for them to have at least a little experience mixing
secondaries and tints, but then there's little time for them to paint.
Any ideas for a painting lesson that 1)requires little drawing so the
more insecure ones don't spend days just trying to draw, 2) can be
completed in a couple of hours? They've already done their names and
perspective drawing in other lessons, so I would rather not use those
