This past week I began doing color themed activities with my youngest. She is great with her colors but I thought this would be a fun way to incorporate other skills into her learning. We started with red this week. I didn’t get pictures of everything we did but here are a few.
I made her a red discovery box. I found lots of fun things to put in it from around the house. She loved the different sized apples and using her red magnifying glass.
I gave her a small bowl of Fruit Loops and a paper plate with red construction paper in the middle. She had to find all the red ones and put them on her plate. She loved eating the others! There are so many fun things you can do with Fruit Loops. Here’s a couple other ideas.
The next day I gave her some red tissue paper, a glue stick, and an apple pattern. She had to tear small pieces of the tissue paper and glue them onto her apple. This is a great way to strengthen those little hand muscles to get them ready for holding a pencil and cutting.
Next week, we are on to blue!
