Color Theory for Second grade

I really like this lesson for all the ahh ha moments it creates.  First the students must fold a piece of 12 x 18 paper in half both landscape and portrait style, then I say "fold to a  Party in the middle" bringing both ends to the middle. This creates 8 boxes. Then the students draw or paint black lines down the creases and add loops to the sides. Someone said they look like Easter eggs but honestly I never even thought of that.

Now they have 16 spaces and only 9 colors of paint. The rule is that they can only use a color ONE TIME. So they get so excited to mix the remaining 7 spaces. The students are constantly saying, "Look what I made!" When they are dry they can add patterns to their colors.
