ExplorationDo your friends and family members see the same colors you do? Time to test it out! Make a color wheel by cutting out a circle, then coloring different pizza slice-shaped sections in the hues of the rainbow. Now walk around your home or yard with a friend or family member and ask questions such as “What color is that bucket?” or “What color is that pillow?,” making sure you stick with the colors on your wheel.Instead of just shouting out the answer to the color questions, point to the color on the wheel that matches the color of the item in your home or yard. Are you and the other player pointing to the same colors? In other words, do you see the same colors?!To make a trickier version of the game, focus on one or two colors when you make your color wheel. For example, instead of coloring a section for each color of the rainbow, make different shades of one or two colors, such as lavender, plum and periwinkle for purple!
