Hundred Languages of Colours
Delving deeper into some of our preschool children’s interest in colours and rainbows, a journey commenced exploring the Hundred Languages of Colours. Colour is a universal language beyond words, yet enables us to communicate on a deeper level. Colour has the ability to evoke thoughts and questions as well as awaken memories, stimulate senses and represent abstract ideas. The exploration began by looking at the hundred languages of ‘red’. “That is light red and that flower is dark red” exclaimed a child, “White added to red makes pink”, “When you mix colours, you’ll be happy” exclaimed another.
