The Magic of Colors Story Excerpt:

He put a glob of red on his paper and then added a glob of yellow.  Where the two colors were closest, he began to draw circles in the paint with his finger.  As a result, the yellow swirled into the red.  The red swirled into the yellow.  With each circle the trails the colors grew thinner. A new color was emerging.  It was orange!
“Wow!” Lydia said. “What other colors can we make?”
“All of them.” Her dad said. “Why don’t you try it out?”

Lydia was excited to try the magic.  She looked at the beautiful orange and decided she would try yellow and blue.  So just like her dad, Lydia dropped a glob of blue and yellow on her paper and drew circles in the paint with her fingers.  The blue swirled into the yellow.  The yellow swirled into the blue.  With each circle the trails of each color grew thinner and a new color was emerging.  It was green!  Soon there was a fluffy green cloud of color on Lydia’s page.  “Your turn.” She said to her dad smiling.
