Day 19 ~ Fractions

Today we are working on a little thing called fractions by using teaspoons and food coloring.    It seems so easy until you have to try to explain it to a 7-year-old.  This is one of those time I wish Chris was here.  He has a very calm and patient way of explaining things to the girls and no one leaves the room in tears and by tears I mean me.

1/2 teaspoon yellow + ???? teaspoon white + 1/4 teaspoon blue = 1 teaspoon of what color?

To be quite honest I don’t know if she quite got the fraction part of  it but she and Olyse had a good time mixing colors together….
